Back at it – Emory, Agnes Scott reopen
Things are slowly starting to return to normal in the Atlanta Metro area after days of severe winter weather.
Emory University and Agnes Scott both reopened Friday, Feb. 14.
“Personal safety is a concern for all who commute under these conditions, and managers are encouraged to be flexible regarding staff reporting times, as road conditions near staff members’ homes may necessitate late arrival. For Emory Healthcare hospital and clinic operations, please visit emoryhealthcare.org,” Emory reported on its website. “Be aware of possible falling ice from buildings and trees, and use only main entrances to buildings. Do not enter areas that have been cordoned off. Shuttles will follow normal schedules, but road conditions may cause delays; parking may not be possible on some top-level decks because of ice; for updates go to transportation.emory.edu.”
Agnes Scott had a similar message. “Please use caution while traveling and notify your supervisor or professor if conditions in your area prevent safe travel,” the college said.
Local governments began reopening today as well. City Schools of Decatur reopened on a two hour delay. Atlanta, DeKalb and Fulton County public schools are closed.
Today is a vast improvement weather-wise. It will be sunny and high is expected to be 54 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Showers are likely tonight, with a low of 32 degrees.
