Thousands of employees at a Monroe County army depot will continue to work during the shutdown.

A Tobyhanna Army Depot official tells us the depot will continue to operate as normal.

We're told some of the space is leased to various federal agencies -- and they could be affected.

But the depot itself is exempt from the shutdown.

The facility is the largest electronics maintenance warehouse in the Department of Defense.
