BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A winter storm will keep Louisiana state offices closed Monday.

Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne’s office confirmed the closures Sunday afternoon.

“All agency heads are responsible for determining those essential personnel who should remain on duty, report for duty or those who should report to alternate work sites as necessary,” the office said in a statement. “Officials continue to monitor conditions throughout the state, and this announcement may be updated.”

The closure applies to all nonessential workers, including those permitted to work from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
