Alerts/Closings/Delays

DHR coordinates with the Agency of Administration and the Governor to determine if emergency closing or delays are necessary.  In the case of such an decision, DHR will update the Current Operating Status found below, the Emergency Phone Line (800-644-4402), local television and radio stations (listed below), and VT-Alert.


Current Operating Status: OPEN

All State offices are open for business during their regularly scheduled hours.  However, as winter weather is not always predictable you are encouraged to allow additional time for travel and exercise caution as you travel to and from work.

This website and the Emergency Information Phone Line (800) 644-4402 will be updated as information changes.  Additionally, the televisions and radio stations list below will be notified.

Real-Time Notifications

DHR has partnered with VT-Alert to create real-time alerts for state employees and the public if necessary. In these situations, all executive branch employees will receive alerts to their state email. Both the state employees and the public can sign up with VT-Alert to receive alerts to a personal email or phone number (with an option for voice and/or text notifications).
