COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Thousands of state government workers in Ohio were without reliable phone, email and internet service as a result of a computer disruption.

A spokesman for the Ohio Department of Administrative Services told The Dayton Daily News experts were working to address the issue Wednesday.

The system was restored by around 1 p.m.

The unspecified problem affected state web sites, causing phones to roll directly to voicemail and prevented public access to state information and data.

Multiple state departments, boards and commissions were impacted, including health, prisons, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, the General Assembly and the offices of statewide elected officials.
