Dear Partners and Applicants

The health and safety of our partners and employees is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19. The guidance and directions below will be revised and updated as needed to respond to changing conditions.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife (USFWS) Virginia Field Office remains open; however, all staff are teleworking until further notice in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and provide social distancing. As a consequence, we have very limited office access, and may not receive hard copy mail (USPS, Fed Ex, UPS) in a timely manner. To help ensure that your questions are reviewed as quickly as circumstances allow, access our online office personnel directory by clicking here and sending an email to the appropriate staff member. Online project reviews should continue to be sent to:

We appreciate your patience as we all are coping with the COVID-19 situation. The staff of Virginia Field Office are working to assist you with your requests and inquiries.
