Inclement Weather Information

THREE WAYS TO LEARN OF CLOSURES DUE TO WEATHER

The State of Wyoming provides three (3) ways to inform state employees about office closures due to inclement winter weather. State employees shouldn't endanger themselves and needlessly travel to their work destination only to find the office is closed. Following are the methods in place to provide information regarding weather related closures:

  1. Website Status: Upon A&I notification, information will be placed on the State's home page regarding any Cheyenne State office closures.
  2. Enterprise Announcement Line ((307) 777-5900): If Cheyenne State offices will be closed, experience a delayed start, or early close, information will be available by calling (307) 777-5900.
  3. GovDelivery: Sign up here to receive a text and/or email with information regarding Cheyenne State Offices being closed, experiencing a delayed start or early close. Information will only be sent when there is an event—such as office closure, delayed start or early close.

When there's no change in the status of offices, the announcement line has a standard greeting that plays. The announcement line does not accept voicemails, but is available as another way to obtain status.

If you hear information on the media regarding state office status, please verify it with one of the above sources as the website, GovDelivery and the announcement line are the official State notification methods for winter weather closures.

It's our intention to provide you with the information you need regarding the status of Cheyenne State offices in the event of a winter weather incident.

REMEMBER!

The only person who may close Cheyenne area offices because of weather is the Governor.
