State offices in eight parishes will remain closed through Sunday, September 19, Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne announced Wednesday.

The extended closures come as the area continues recovery efforts associated with Hurricane Ida, which made landfall on August 29.

The affected parishes are: Jefferson, Lafourche, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John the Baptist, Tangipahoa, and Terrebonne.

All agency heads are responsible for determining those essential personnel who should remain on duty, report for duty or those who should report to alternate work sites as necessary. Officials continue to monitor conditions throughout the state, and this announcement may be updated.

This office closure applies to all nonessential employees, including those authorized to work from home due to COVID-19.
