Return to Work Survey

The Capital Region needs your organization’s participation to safely and sustainably reopen. We encourage all employers in the region – private, public and non-profit – to answer a brief 10-minute survey about each organization's reopening plans. Please ask a staff member to complete the survey with the ability to answer or estimate return to worksite timelines and policies, COVID-19 testing plans, and employee transportation trends. Together, this effort can enhance coordination and enable the region to make more informed decisions about how to safely reopen.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, employers and transportation agencies across the region seek better insight into how and when organizations are planning to reopen worksites and how employers feel about the ability of transit agencies to safely return employees to worksites. Each organization that completes this important survey will receive a summary of the survey results, transit agency ridership information and crowding trends for all Washington metro area agencies (e.g., WMATA, VRE, MARC, etc.), and projections for the upcoming month that are aimed at supporting key reopening decisions.

We ask that your organization completes the survey no later than August 28th, 2020.

Thank you for assistance in creating a stronger, safer, more informed region as we work together to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. We also thank the Greater Washington Partnership, Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG), Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA), Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC) and other leading business organizations for organizing this effort.
