See the Office of Personnel Management announcement which says:
FEDERAL OFFICES in the Washington, DC area are CLOSED. Emergency and telework-ready employees required to work must follow their agency’s policies, including written telework agreements.
The USPTO is closed today, Friday, March 2, 2018.
Normally at this time of year such a closure would be due to a dusting of snow. But the reason for the closure is “high wind”.
Oh, and at the risk of stating the obvious, this means that any response or action that would have been due today will be timely if filed by this coming Monday, March 5, 2018.
But people are telling me they think the USPTO is actually open today. If this is true, then maybe the resetting of response dates to Monday won’t happen after all.
I will investigate further.
