WETHERSFIELD, CT (WFSB) – COVID-19 has hit the Department of Motor Vehicles in Wethersfield.
Channel 3 learned six employees have been infected there.
A DMV executive says when the first positive case was discovered, the entire building was shut down for 48 hours for disinfecting.
The official also says infected workers have not been at the office since March 10 and everyone who can work from home is doing so.
The DMV says registrations and CDL licenses still need to be processed and call that work “essential.”
On Thursday, DMV announced the Wethersfield office will close for a deep cleaning, effective Friday, March 27.
The deep cleaning will involve an electrostatic disinfectant treatment.
The building will reopen to employees on Tuesday, March 31.
The Wethersfield office will continue the electrostatic disinfection on a weekly basis in additional to the nightly deep cleanings.
The DMV union is calling the building “unsafe.”
