The Hagerstown Telework Center will remain open through April 2000, despite a published report that it had closed, said Manager Mary Bray.
Bray met with the General Services Administration this week after reading a story in Sunday's Washington Post that declared the center shut down.
It turned out that the General Services Administration gave the newspaper the wrong information. The mistake was made by a new group of people who recently took over the telecommuting project, she said.
"The confirmation of the contract renewal was reassuring. I was debating whether to send the teleworkers home or assume the article was in error. I chose the latter," Bray said.
