Division of Motor Vehicles Closes Trinidad Office Due to Employee Illness

LAKEWOOD, Monday, July 20, 2020 -- The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is closing the Trinidad DMV office today after the two employees who work in the office reported being ill. It is not known if this is related to COVID-19, but the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has recommended the testing of both employees.

The driver license office is located in a Las Animas County building and is the only office in the building that was open. If testing on our employees is negative, the DMV will resume operations. If tests are positive, the DMV Office will remain closed until it is cleaned by Las Animas County and sufficient staff is available to reopen. The DMV is contacting and rescheduling customers who were scheduled for appointments but cannot be seen.

Customers who have appointments in the Trinidad Driver License Office throughout this week should monitor this web page for updated information on the office reopening, or how to reschedule an appointment.

Staff at all State driver license offices wear masks at all times, and glass barriers were added at counter stations in all DMV offices before reopening in May to further protect customers and employees. DMV administration will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as they are available.

Note: Our goal is safety for all of our customers and staff. All State DMV offices have been conducting health screenings for all customers and employees entering all offices since driver license offices reopened in May.
