GOV. MALLOY: NONESSENTIAL STATE EMPLOYEES SHOULD NOT REPORT TO WORK ON FRIDAY
Will Hold News Briefings at Noon and 6PM Friday
 
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy is asking nonessential state employees to stay home on Friday in advance of the coming blizzard.  However, evening and midnight shift employees should report to work as normal on Friday. 
 
The Governor also announced that he will fully activate the state’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) on Friday at 9:00 a.m. to continue coordinating the state’s response to the storm.
 
“Based on the forecasts we’re looking at now, I am asking nonessential state employees to remain at home on Friday,” said Governor Malloy.  “If the worst-case scenario plays out, we will need roads clear for emergency personnel and utility crews.  But even under the best of circumstances, it appears at this point that the best course of action is to keep people off the roads.  Whether you’re a state employee or not, if you can stay home and off the roads tomorrow, please do so.”
 
In addition, following a series of unified command meetings and municipal conference calls, the Governor will hold two media briefings from the state EOC on Friday – the first at 12:00 p.m., followed by another at 6:00 p.m.
