Blizzard Closes State Offices In Several Counties

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard has ordered all state offices in 13 South Dakota counties closed today (Monday) because of the blizzard and winter storm impacting a majority of the state.

 

State offices are closed in the counties of: Brule, Campbell, Faulk, Hand, Hughes, Hyde, Jones, Lyman, Potter, Stanley, Sully, Tripp and Walworth.

 

Only essential personnel within state offices in those counties should report to their work stations.

 

The state Capitol in Pierre remains open and the state Legislature is holding its regular committee meetings and floor sessions. People who plan to testify should call the Legislative Research Council at 605-773-3251.

 

Officials are monitoring the storm closely and evaluating whether further state-office closures might be necessary.

 

Citizens with business at state offices in other South Dakota counties impacted by the storm should call ahead to make sure the office remains open.
