HARTFORD, CT - Governor Dannel P. Malloy has ordered a delayed opening for state offices on Thursday morning until 10am for all nonessential state employees. 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.
"Based on the information we have right now, I am going to delay the opening of state offices for nonessential state employees until 10:00am tomorrow,” said Governor Malloy. “I am going to convene an early morning call with emergency management officials tomorrow and, at that point, determine if additional delays or possibly a full closure are necessary.”
In addition, Governor Malloy instituted a ban on tandem trucks – i.e. double tractor-trailers – on primary and secondary roads effective at 4:00am Thursday morning.
