All City of Virginia Beach offices and facilities will be closed today, Tuesday, Feb. 17. That includes all city parks, recreation centers, libraries and museums. As a reminder, no sledding is allowed at Mount Trashmore Park.

Virginia Beach will be under Essential Operating Conditions as of 10 a.m. today. Alpha 1 employees should contact supervisors for reporting responsibilities. Alpha II employees are temporarily released from assigned work schedules for the duration of the Essential Condition.


Depending on conditions and needed city services, Alpha II employees may have their Alpha status changed to Alpha I and would then be required to report to work. A decision will be made later today on operating status for tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 18.


Trash and recycle pickups have been canceled for today.


Public Works crews are working through the day and will continue working through the night to clear and treat major roads. Crews from Landscape Services are working to clear and treat areas around city offices and facilities, including police stations and fire stations. They are being assisted by volunteer crews from Public Works and Public Utilities.


Drivers should not be out on the roads, if at all possible, to allow emergency vehicles to do their jobs.
