The Jersey City Vehicle Center, widely still referred to as the DMV, will be closed until the day after Christmas after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

“BREAKING: JERSEY CITY VEHICLE CENTER is closed due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19, and will reopen Saturday, December 26,” the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission tweeted last night.

This is the second time the Jersey City DMV closed due to the coronavirus, the first time being late September into early October.

The North Bergen DMV was the first Hudson County facility to close twice as a result of the virus, while the Bayonne MVC shuttered last month, and then again on December 10th, for the same reason.

Yesterday, the NJ MVC announced that starting Monday, their facilities would only be open via appointment only, meaning that walk-ins will no longer be accepted.
