Richmond City Council votes to continue working from home until 2022


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Richmond City Council voted on Monday night to extend an ordinance that allows them to work from home.

The ordinance “assures the continuity of government during the disaster resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic by modifying the practices and procedures of public bodies to permit electronic meetings.”

The city council’s extension will allow them to keep working from home until at least Dec. 31, 2021.

Correction: This article has been updated to no longer associate the ordinance above with the local state of emergency put into place at the start of the pandemic.
