State offices to close Monday due to winter weather advisory

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The office of Governor Deal has released a map of cities that will see non-essential state office closings in Georgia.

Gov. Deal announced Sunday evening that non-essential state offices will remain closed on Monday, Jan. 8, due to a national winter weather advisory.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we are closing non-essential agencies to ensure our employees' safety as well as ensure the Georgia Department of Transportation's ability to maintain and treat our roads," said Deal. "This closure will run from Columbus across to Augusta and northward. The Capitol will remain open, however, so that the Legislature may gavel into the 2018 session as constitutionally required."
