State employees are encouraged to contact their supervisors for further guidance.
“As conditions are predicted to intensify throughout the day, we are ordering all first and second shift, non-essential state employees to stay home today. I don’t like the term non-essential because I think everyone does important work, but with poor road conditions I don’t want to put anyone in harm’s way. With heavy snow falling across the state and forecast to continue throughout the day, I am asking residents to avoid unnecessary travel," Malloy said in a statement.
