DRAPER, Utah — The Utah State Tax Commission has announced that the DMV office at 14555 South Minute Man Drive in Draper will be closed until further notice after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

“This is frustrating for customers and employees but unavoidable given the situation,” said Monte Roberts, the Motor Vehicle Division Director.  “All customer appointments scheduled at this office will be canceled.  Those customers that have scheduled appointments are encouraged to schedule an appointment at other offices until the office is reopened.”
 
The DMV says that new appointments can be scheduled on their website and that they are making efforts to reduce the number of person-to-person contacts
 
The Draper office will be cleaned and sterilized before re-opening to the public, the State Tax Commission says.  
 
Last month a DMV in South Salt Lake also was forced to close after an employee tested positive for the virus. 
 

How To Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus

COVID-19 coronaviruses transmitted from person to person. It is a virus that is similar to the common cold and the flu. So, to prevent it from spreading:

  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
  • Don’t touch your face.
  • Keep children and those with compromised immune systems away from someone who is coughing or sneezing (in this instance, at least six feet)
  • If there is an outbreak near you, practice social distancing (stay at home, instead of going to the movies, sports events, or other activities.)
  • Get a flu shot.
