State officials are warning Illinoisans to stay at home and off the roads if they can.

Even with the thermometer rising above zero degrees today, Gov. Pat Quinn says if at all possible, you should take another day off.

“I think use common sense,” Quinn said. “Talk to your employer and find out if, what that employer feels the job should be done, whether you can do it from home.”

Quinn is also urging everyone to check on their neighbors and loved ones, especially the elderly.

The Illinois Department of Public Health says if you do have to leave the house, don’t stay outside long and wear multiple layers to reduce the chance of frostbite or hypothermia.
