Inclement Weather Information


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:

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.


Only the Governor may close Cheyenne area offices because of weather conditions.
