Gov. Gina Raimondo says government offices will remain open during the latest winter storm.

Rhode Island courts also will be open but hearings are postponed and jurors are advised to stay home.

Raimondo said in a statement that she’s in regular communication with state agencies and are monitoring the storm and taking steps to prepare.         She says plows and salt supplies are in “good shape.”

The courts say jurors should plan to show up Tuesday.

Judiciary employees are expected to report to work.
