NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — Niagara County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski announced Monday the Niagara Falls office of the Niagara County DMV will be closed until Monday, January 25 due to COVID-19.

Officials say the closure is due to the isolation and quarantine of several staff members.

"I apologize to the public for this inconvenience, but as we have seen throughout this pandemic, the COVID-19 virus can wreak havoc in a moment's notice," said Jastrzemski. "We are currently working closely with the Niagara County Health Department to make sure we follow all protocols and are comfortable we will be able to open up next Monday."

Jastrzemski says anyone with an appointment for the Niagara Falls office can keep that appointment time with either the North Tonawanda or Lockport office.

"We have redeployed staff to help ensure that anyone who booked an appointment in Niagara Falls can show up at the same time to either Lockport or North Tonawanda and we can handle their transaction. They do not need to call us or do anything else, just show up at either office at their scheduled time," said Jastrzemski.
