Deal: Non-essential state offices will remain closed tomorrow

January 7, 2018

Gov. Nathan Deal today announced non-essential state offices will remain closed on Monday, January 8, due to a National Weather Service Winter Weather Advisory.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are closing non-essential agencies to ensure our employees’ safety as well as ensure the Georgia Department of Transportation’s ability to maintain and treat our roads,” said Deal. “This closure will run from Columbus across to Augusta and northward. The Capitol will remain open, however, so that the Legislature may gavel into the 2018 session as constitutionally required.”
