Also in effect today, the Mississippi Department of Public Safety announces customers will be required to wear masks inside the driver’s license stations.
Temperature checks will be administered to each customer before entering service locations.
Wednesdays will now only be designated for firearm permits, security guard permits, renewals, and duplicate transactions for driver licenses and identification cards.
Wednesdays will also be available for customers 65 years and older to be serviced between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Gulfport resident Edward Day said, “The mask? I mean, it’s necessary I guess. It’s extremely hot to be sitting out here and waiting in the line sweating, trying to get your information processed through the DMV. It’s a long wait.”
Each station location will continue following the daily schedule according to the first letter of customers’ last names.
