FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – The slow clearing of state and local roads prompted Gov. Dannel Malloy to order all non-emergency personnel to remain home Monday.
However, employees who work evening and midnight shift should plan to report to work as normal on Monday.
“Getting streets clear and making them safer for everyone is a priority, so I am asking nonessential state employees to stay home tomorrow,” said Malloy in a statement. “I understand that everyone wants to get back to normal as quickly as possible. Crews are working around the clock to accomplish that goal. But the last thing we need at this point is a typical morning rush hour commute. Traffic build-up will only delay the effort to clear our roads."
