The Illinois secretary of state’s office’s Midlothian Drivers Services Facility will be closed until Aug. 5 after an employee tested positive for the coronavirus.

All employees at the facility at 14434 S. Pulaski Rd. in the south suburb will self-quarantine for two weeks while the facility undergoes cleaning, according Secretary of State Jesse White’s office.

Drivers are recommended to use nearby facilities in:

  • Chicago, 9901 S. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr.
  • Joliet, 201 S. Joyce Rd.
  • Bradley, 1111 Blatt St.

In mid-March, all Illinois driver facilities were closed to fight the spread of coronavirus while White’s office extended expiration dates until Nov. 1 for driver’s licenses and stickers.

They reopened in early June with social distancing measures and online preregistration to shorten wait times, but several Chicago area locations have temporarily closed again after employees tested positive for COVID-19.

White’s office announced June 19 that driver’s license facilities in Schaumburg and South Holland closed after workers tested positive.
