Immediate Changes for DMV Employees as DMV Closes Field Offices CSLEA continues its work to keep essential employees safe

SACRAMENTO - For weeks, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) has been in continued discussions with DMV and the Governor’s Administration on health and safety conditions at DMV field offices.  As COVID-19 continues to spread, CSLEA has continued to press for further proactive measures.  Even after CSLEA was successful in lobbying the state to suspend drive tests, CSLEA continued to correspond with DMV on the need to take further proactive steps to improve health and safety at field offices for staff and the public.

CSLEA is pleased to report that despite the essential nature of DMV work, the state has chosen to restrict public access to DMV offices effective tomorrow, Friday March 27th.  Field offices will be closed and full-time Examiners will be provided Administrative Time Off for Friday, March 27th and Monday, March 30th (Only Permanent Intermittent Employees that were scheduled to work either day will receive ATO).  During this time, all field offices will be given a deep cleaning.  After the State Holiday on March 31st, employees will return to work at the field offices.  They will be trained to perform tasks so that the field offices will operate as "virtual" field offices - to assist customers on-line.  The important fact is, there will be no public access to the field offices until further notice.  This will significantly limit the hazards associated with COVID-19 at the field offices.

CSLEA is relieved that the State has decided to take these proactive measures rather than waiting to react when offices have a connection to a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.

CSLEA will continue to remain engaged with DMV as we all navigate this novel virus.
