State government offices to remain closed in St. John the Baptist and Plaquemines parishes Wednesday

(BATON ROUGE) Due to continuing safety concerns following Hurricane Isaac, Commissioner of Administration Paul Rainwater announced that Louisiana state government offices will remain closed on Wednesday, September 5, in St. John the Baptist and Plaquemines parishes.

State offices in all other parishes will be open Wednesday.  However, department heads should exercise discretion if they have a particular circumstance, such as a building without power, that necessitates employees not reporting to work within a parish that is reopened.

All agency heads are responsible for determining those essential personnel who should remain  on duty or those who should report to alternative work sites if necessary.
 
In addition, state government employees should be aware of the following phone numbers to call, which will be updated with information regarding office closures and re-openings: 1-800-360-9660 or 225-342-0498.
