A Schaumburg driver’s services facility that recently reopened has been shut down again after a state employee there tested positive for the coronavirus and will stay closed until July 2 “out of an abundance of caution,” according to the Illinois secretary of state’s office.

The public is not “directly impacted by this situation,” state health officials said, but employees will be quarantined for two weeks while the building at 1227 E. Golf Road is cleaned.

The Schaumburg facility reopened June 2 after a statewide shutdown of all driver facilities in late March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Secretary of State Jesse White’s office also said Friday that a commercial driver’s license facility in South Holland, 41 W. 162nd St., will be closed until July 7 because an employee there tested positive for COVID-19.

The locations are open only to new drivers, customers with expired driver’s licenses/ID cards and vehicle transactions.

Drivers are encouraged to preregister online at www.cyberdriveillinois.com to reduce wait times.
