Gov. Dannel Malloy today announced that he is ordering all first- and second-shift state employees, who are designated as "nonessential," not to report to work on Tuesday, Jan. 27, in response to statewide winter storm conditions. State employees are encouraged to contact their supervisors for further guidance.
“After consulting with my emergency management team, we’ve decided to order all first and second-shift nonessential state employees not to report to work on Tuesday," said the governor. "I don’t like the term ‘nonessential’ because I think everyone does important work, but with poor road conditions I don’t want to put anyone in harm’s way."
