DPS to require masks at all driver license offices as of July 13

The state Department of Public Safety, which includes all driver license offices, will begin requiring masks to be worn at all offices starting July 13.

In a press release, the DPS said the decision was made because of the continuing rise of COVID-19 cases across the state.

For the remainder of this week, DPS is urging customers to mask up while visiting their offices.

In order to help the offices run safely and more efficiently, customers are also being asked to follow proper social distancing protocols while waiting to be served. “We have to be diligent in our efforts to limit transmission of the virus,” said DPS Public Safety Commissioner Sean Tindell. “We also feel it is imperative to require a face mask be worn by all patrons and personnel inside driver license offices to accomplish that goal.”

Each station location will continue following the daily schedule according to the first letter of customers’ last names.

  • Monday          A-E
  • Tuesday         F-L
  • Wednesday    Firearm Permits, Security Guard Permits, Renewals, & Duplicates
  • Thursday       M-S
  • Friday            T-Z

In order to limit exposure, customers can take advantage of the online services by visiting www.dps.ms.gov and the Driver Service Bureau link.
