ALL but essential City of Columbia services are cancelled for both Feb. 1 and 2. Only employees essential to snow removal, public safety, emergency response and certain administrative and public communications functions are working. Most City buildings are closed. Call before you try to visit, and only if you NEED to visit. Stay safe.
