Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has ordered a delayed opening for state offices on Wednesday morning, directing all nonessential state employees to report to work at 10 a.m. The delayed opening will allow extra time for transportation crews to clear the roads of the snowfall forecasted to impact the state beginning early tomorrow morning. For further updates, state employees should continue monitoring local media as well as the website of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, where they can locate an “Early Release/Late Openings/Closures” button.
“As I continue to get updates from state emergency management officials on the potential impact of the severe weather headed our way, I’ve decided to ask all executive branch agencies to enact their delayed opening plans so that we are not bogged down during the usual morning rush, right when the snowfall is forecasted to be at its heaviest. Private sector companies may want to consider similar plans,” said Malloy in a press release. “If you do not need to be on the road tomorrow morning, please stay home.”
