TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — State workers are getting two extra days to spend with their families this holiday season.

On Friday, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that state offices will be closed on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31.

“2020 was a challenging year for all Floridians, particularly our state employees who worked around the clock responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency,” said Governor DeSantis. “Closing state offices on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve will provide these employees with much-needed additional time off to spend with their loved ones. The First Lady and I extend our appreciation to state employees for their hard work and wish them and their families a happy holiday season.”
