QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The USDA office in Quincy has closed their doors in Quincy until further notice, due to the government shutdown.

The door was locked, the shades pulled down, and a sign was posted on the door. Employees tell WGEM they were instructed to log off of their workstations before leaving. 

The Quincy office houses the Rural Development Operations, which was considered to be a nonessential services. According to office officials, the shutdown means Rural Development would not be able to make any new loans in grants, except in emergency cases.
