RALEIGH – The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles was notified today that an employee at the DMV headquarters in Raleigh tested positive for COVID-19. The employee, who worked in an area not open to the public, was last in the building on Wednesday, May 6th.
The health and safety of our workforce is our top priority so state and/or local public health officials will work with the employee to identify anyone with whom they were in close contact while they were on the campus. Those individuals will be notified directly by public health officials and provided medical information as soon as possible.
DMV is immediately closing the headquarters on New Bern Avenue to all customers and personnel. A thorough cleaning by a professional service will take place. Once the building has been cleaned it will be certified as safe to reopen. There is not a set timetable for completing that process.
The License Plate Agency located at the headquarters has already been closed for several weeks.
