State offices to remain open today

Johnson City Press • Jan 29, 2019 at 8:27 AM

All Tennessee government offices will remain open today as a polar vortex bears down the state.

Gov. Bill Lee’s office announced the decision in a news release, saying all the state’s “subject matter experts” had been consulted and weather conditions were being monitored closely. Any impact on operations would communicated further.

The release reminded state employees that conditions caused by inclement weather require each employee to make a personal decision regarding safety in traveling to and from the workplace.
