Governor’s Statement on Weather Conditions

State of Delaware Offices Closing Early


(Wilmington) – State of Delaware offices are closing at noon. Non-essential employees are to leave for the day. Non-essential employees who work other shifts are not to report. Essential employees are to remain at work and report as scheduled.

The Governor’s Office released this statement from Governor Markell on weather conditions:

“Snow has begun falling throughout most of the state and significant snowfall totals are expected,” said Governor Markell. “DelDOT crews are actively working to clear primary roads and will continue to do so. We strongly encourage drivers who do not need to travel to delay or refrain from going on the roads to give DelDOT plows time and ability to work. If you don’t need to be driving, stay home until roads are cleared,” he said.

“State offices will close at noon because road conditions are expected to deteriorate as the storm continues to move across the State. Other employers should evaluate the status of road conditions in their vicinity,” Markell said.
