Governor’s Statement on Weather Conditions

4State of Delaware offices are closed today (Tuesday, February 17) during regular business hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Non-essential employees have been asked not to report to work for this period. Essential employees have been asked to report as scheduled. The Governor’s Office released this statement from Governor Markell on weather conditions:

“DelDOT crews are working hard this morning to clear Delaware’s primary roads,” said Governor Markell. “While the snow will stop this morning, freezing conditions will remain throughout the day and some roads will remain treacherous. DelDOT does not expect to start clearing secondary roads statewide until mid-day. Due to those road conditions and because it does not appear that state facilities will be safe for employees and the public until some point late today, state offices will be closed. Other employers should evaluate for themselves whether and when their facilities will be safe and the status of road conditions in their vicinity. We 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.”
