The National Weather Service is predicting that the State of South Carolina may experience severe weather conditions today and tomorrow. This could result in the closure or delayed opening of state and local government offices.
I remind all county and municipal employees working within the Unified Judicial System that they should follow the decisions made by the respective county or municipal government officials in regards to office delays or closings as a result of this inclement weather.
All state judicial officers and employees should follow the decisions made by county government officials in regards to office delays or closings.
Despite the above, the chief judges for administrative purposes at all levels may direct that certain matters or proceedings go forward despite the closure or delay, and shall ensure that bond hearings continue to be conducted at least once a day.
Please refer to the State Emergency Management Division website, www.scemd.org/closings, for the status of state government offices for each county.
