Cranston DMV temporarily closed after staffer tests positive for COVID-19

West Bay

CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — The R.I. Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) headquarters in Cranston will remain closed through Friday after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

DMV spokesperson Paul Grimaldi said that employee hasn’t been in the building since March 20.

Before it shut down Thursday morning, the Cranston office was the only branch still operating; all of the DMV’s satellite offices were closed due to the ongoing pandemic.

The facility will undergo cleaning before it reopens, according to Brenna McCabe, the Department of Administration’s director of public affairs.

“We understand that this is a difficult time for both customers and state employees. Keeping everyone safe must be our first priority,” she wrote in a statement. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers.”
