VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The Victorville Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has implemented social distancing practices amidst the coronavirus worldwide pandemic.
Local residents visiting the DMV in the 14800 block of Corta Drive in Victorville Monday morning were met with a long line of people that wrapped around the building.
Apple Valley resident Sheri Espinoza was one of those people waiting in that line.
“At 7:50 am, an employee came outside to get our attention and told us that the CDC was issuing a social distancing protocol where all of the customers had to stand two arm lengths apart or 6 feet,” stated Shery.
According to Sheri, DMV employees were letting in small groups of people at a time while people waiting outside were told to stand six feet or two arms lengths apart.
Inside the building, Sheri immediately noticed many of the squeezed together chairs had been removed. “60 of their 100 chairs in order to follow the new protocol,” stated Shery.
Customers visiting the Victorville DMV were given the following note:
“In an effort to safeguard the health of our customers and employees, and following the advice and guidance of public health officials, we are practicing social distancing and monitoring the number of people in our facilities. This may lead to increased wait times and time spent outside the building. Text message notifications are offered which will allow you to wait outside or in your car and return to the building when your customer service number is called. While waiting in line we encourage you to allow six feet – or two arms lengths – between you and other customers.”
Health experts are asking people all across the country to practice social distancing as a way to help limit the spread of coronavirus. Social distancing is a term being used as a conscious way to reduce close contact between people.
