LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County is reminding residents that County Government buildings will reopen to the general public on Monday, August 30, 2021, after closing in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Prince George’s County Government has been planning for the safe reopening of County Government buildings to the public for the past three months.


This pandemic challenged us in many ways, and we have worked hard to successfully transition government services virtually to provide for residents while keeping everyone safe,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. “However, we recognize that some residents do require in-person assistance, which is why we have decided to take this next step to safely reopen our buildings to the public. As we enter into this next phase, I want to thank each and every Prince George’s County Government employee for continuing to work hard to provide high-quality services to our residents throughout this pandemic.”


Most County Government agencies will resume normal operations, encouraging residents to make appointments while also accepting walk-ins. Some agencies will require residents to make an appointment to receive in-person services. Agencies requiring residents to make an appointment include:


  • Department of Housing & Community Development
  • Department of Permitting, Inspections & Enforcement
  • Housing Authority
  • Office of Finance


The County strongly encourages residents to review an agency’s website to verify if an appointment is needed prior to visiting, and for instructions on how appointments can be scheduled.


As a reminder, the indoor public mask mandate applies to County Government buildings, meaning all employees and visitors must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. Residents who violate the indoor mask mandate will be denied service.
