Governor Malloy told “nonessential” state employees not to report to work Monday,  to help the communities where state offices are located clear local streets.  In his 6 p.m. Sunday briefing,  he said he hopes that the state action sets an example for private businesses,  urging that those who can work from home do so,  and those who must travel to the office to carpool where possible.

Malloy said the state hopes to provide 65 frontloader units by the end of the day Monday,  to help local communities clear snow.    And he warned that freezing rain forecast for Monday will make snow piles “as hard as jersey barriers and urged caution on the part of drivers.
