An Aurora motor vehicle office will close temporarily after after an employee tested positive for COVID-19 and other employees had been exposed.
The office, at 490 S. Chambers Road, will be closed from Wednesday through Friday, according to an Arapahoe County news release.
“We are closing the Aurora Motor Vehicle Office out of an abundance of caution for our customers and our employees,” said Clerk and Recorder Joan Lopez in the release. “We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with Tri-County Health to ensure we are doing everything possible to keep everyone safe. We ask for patience and understanding during this time and understand this closure comes at a time when customers have had limited access to services due to COVID. The safety or our customers and employees is our top concern.”
Arapahoe County is following Tri-County Health Department and CDC guidelines covering steps to be taken when an employee tests positive, and the one employee who tested positive is quarantining, the release said. Co-workers are urged to get tested and the offices are being deep cleaned and decontaminated while closed.
