Illinois driver service facilities will close for weeks because of the worsening COVID-19 pandemic.
The facilities will close Tuesday and are expected to reopen Dec. 7, according to Secretary of State Jesse White’s office.
Expiration dates for driver’s licenses and ID cards have been extended to June 1 as a result of the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the office said.
“The health and safety of employees and the public remains paramount and face-to-face transactions potentially increase the further spread of the virus,” White said in a statement. “We have extended expiration dates to assist people during this difficult time.”
In mid-March, all Illinois driver facilities were closed to fight the spread of coronavirus while White’s office extended expiration dates for driver’s licenses and stickers until Nov. 1.
