SCHAUMBERG, Ill. -- The Illinois Secretary of State's office has closed a Drivers Services Facility in suburban Chicago for two weeks, and staff is being quarantined for 14 days, after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The Schaumburg facility will be closed until July 2, WBBM-TV reported.


'The Illinois Department of Public Health has been consulted and confirmed that public is not directly impacted by this situation,' Secretary of State Jesse White's office said in a statement.

While employees at the facility are being quarantined, the Schaumburg office will be cleaned and sanitized under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

The state reopened Drivers Service centers earlier this month, but only for new drivers, those with expired licenses or ID cards, and vehicle transactions.

While the Schaumburg office is closed, drivers can conduct business at facilities in Lake Zurich, Des Plaines and Elgin.
