“We are committed to continuing to serve our unemployment insurance claimants by routing all calls from the call center to our local UI claims offices. We ask for the public’s patience during this time, as we will be operating at a reduced capacity,” said Anne Perreira-Eustaquio, DLIR director, said in a statement last week.

The affected rooms and public areas are on the third floor of the building.

The Convention Center remains open, and events outside these areas may continue.
