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 

It is 1:00 PM on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.  Weather conditions do not warrant the closing of State offices or a reduced workforce situation.  However, a strong system is bringing in heavy, wet snow and freezing temperatures which has the potential to create hazardous travel conditions in certain areas. Heavy wet snow and gusty winds could also produce isolated power outages. Therefore, everyone should exercise caution, allow additional time as you travel to or from work and are encouraged to check 511 for the most up to date information on road conditions and route selection.  Agencies and departments, subject to their operating needs, may wish to authorize employees to leave early and/or report late for work to better accommodate travel, using their own leave time.

Please be aware that weather conditions will be monitored closely and this website and the Emergency Information Phone Line (800) 644-4402 will be updated as information changes.  Additionally, the television 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).
