Six New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission offices have been forced to close after employees tested positive for COVID-19.
The locations that are closed include Delanco, Eatontown, Newark, North Bergen, Paterson and Springfield. MVC officials say that the offices will be cleaned and that affected employees are being quarantined. Contact tracing is also underway.
Customers say that while they know the closures could translate into longer wait times at the open offices, they know that the closures are for their own safety.
“I would hope they’d shut it down. For themselves and employees and the customers as well,” says Carteret resident Toya.
The MVC has made changes to alleviate the crowds that have formed since the agency reopened several months ago. Those changes include a text message system that allows customers to leave the property until it is their turn.
The agency recommends that customers check the MVC website before heading to any location so that they can check out track closures, capacity and to make sure the center they are heading to does the type of business they want to be done. Many types of MVC business can be completed online.
The Springfield location is excepted to open on Friday; the Delanco location on Oct. 24.
