Moratorium on Utility Disconnections ENDS

Governor Northam’s state of emergency declaration related to the COVID-19 pandemic expired June 30,
2021. Therefore, the Appropriations Act that prohibits disconnections for non-payment of utility bills until
60 days after the state of emergency will end and utility service disconnections are permitted to resume
on August 29, 2021.

Please note that Prince George County Utilities’ normal business practices will resume on August 29, 2021.
At that time, nonpayment for utility service may result in service disconnections and late fee charges.
Should customers impacted by COVID-19 require financial assistance, please visit the Prince George
County Utilities & Engineering webpage for information on how to apply for Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and
Economic Security (CARES) Act Utility Relief by clicking on the link below. To avoid utility disconnections,
applications for CARES Act Utility Relief must be submitted before August 15, 2021. Applications will
continue to be accepted after this date, but utility disconnections may occur if the application process is
not complete by this date. Should you need a paper application or have additional questions, please call
the Prince George Utility Department at 804.722.8706.
