Here's a release from the state Office of Administration:

"The Office of Administration announced that non-essential employees under the Governor’s jurisdiction who work in the Capitol Complex, Harrisburg area, Pittsburgh, Reading, Scranton and Philadelphia State Office Buildings are authorized to leave work two hours prior to their scheduled quitting time today, due to inclement weather.

Non-essential employees working in state office buildings located in other areas will receive specific instructions from their agencies.

Essential employees, particularly those working in public safety, will continue to work as scheduled.

Employees and the public should monitor their local media outlets for the most up-to-date information on state office delays and closings. Information is also available on the Alerts & Advisories page at

In addition, individuals can subscribe to notifications via email or text message to your pager or cell phone at AlertPA, located at <>. All you have to do is set-up an account and opt to receive 'Commonwealth Employee Delays/Closings.' There is no cost for this service."
