PEORIA (25 NEWS) - If you’re trying to go to the DMV or another Secretary of State department facility in Illinois, you’re going to have to wait another week.

Thursday Secretary of State Jesse White announced in-person transactions will resume Monday, January 24th.

The Secretary of State offices and facilities first closed on Jan. 3, due to the surge in COVID-19 cases statewide.

Driver Services facilities operating on a Tuesday – Saturday schedule will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 25.

“The health and safety of employees and the public remains my top priority, and face-to-face transactions potentially increase the further spread of the virus. We are pleased to see what appears to be the beginning of a downswing in COVID-19 cases and, if this trend continues, we will reopen Jan. 24 for face-to-face transactions,” said White.

White noted that three Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) facilities will open on Tuesday, Jan. 18, for in-person CDL services only.

The CDL facilities are:

-Rockford at 4734 Baxter Rd.

-Springfield at 2701 S. Dirksen Pkwy.

-Marion at 1905 Rendelman St.
