GOV. MALLOY ORDERS ALL NON-ESSENTIAL STATE EMPLOYEES NOT TO REPORT TO WORK MONDAY
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy on Sunday evening announced that he has ordered all non-essential state employees not to report into work for all shifts on Monday, October 29, in response to the impending severe impact of Hurricane Sandy on Connecticut.
“After having consulted with state agency officials and our weather forecasters, I am ordering all non-essential state employees to stay home Monday,” Governor Malloy said. “Actually, I’m not a fan of that term – to me, everyone who works is important, but that’s the term that’s used. So if you’re designated as non-essential, stay home. If you’re designated as essential, then report to work.”
Further announcements will be made as the storm progresses through the state during the coming days.
