As the cleanup effort continues in Stratford and other parts of the state, Governor Malloy is asking all nonesseential state employees to not report to work on Monday.
Evening and midnight shift employees, however, should report to work as normal on Monday, a statement from the governor's office advised.
"Getting streets clear and making them safer for everyone is a priority, so I am asking nonessential state employees to stay home tomorrow," Malloy said 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."
