Gov. Joe Lombardo announced that state offices in Carson City, Douglas County, Lyon County, Storey County, and Washoe County will remain closed on Tuesday. Aside from essential public safety and corrections personnel, state offices in these counties will be closed today due to ongoing severe winter weather. 


Recent winter storms continue to create regional transportation difficulties and potentially dangerous road conditions across northern Nevada, and Governor Lombardo asks Nevadans to continue to follow all local transportation and public safety guidance. 


The Office of the Governor will continue to monitor emerging weather conditions alongside the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the Department of Public Safety (DPS).


Due to the continuing winter storm warning, high winds and weather-related conditions, all schools in the Carson City School District will be closed for the entire day Tuesday, Feb. 28.

All employees and students should remain home. No student activities, afterschool programs or practices will occur, including remote instruction. No school services such as transportation, nutrition or student health will be provided.
