All But Five Ohio BMV Offices Closed


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has ordered all but five of the state's BMV offices to close, as the coronavirus outbreak continues to grip the state.

DeWine says the remaining open license bureaus are so Commercial Driver's Licenses, or CDL's, can still be administered. He says the food and medical supplies still need to be moved, so the CDL license renewals and new licenses will be available.

With the closures, DeWine adds all fines for expired license plates and expired driver's licenses will be waived while the order is in effect.

DeWine adds that for business that still have employees showing up to work, he asks that all employees have their temperature taken every day when they arrive, or else they should be sent home.
