55 BMV sites re-opened
Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicle offices have started re-opening with extended hours. To date, 55 offices throughout the state are now open. During Gov. Eric Holcomb’s update today (May 4), state officials said every Hoosier can get to an open BMV office within an hour and the goal is to have all BMV offices open by Memorial Day.
Clarksville and Evansville are Southern Indiana sites that are open.
The state said hours have been extended from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
There are nine different transactions that a motorist might need to do with a BMV office that can’t be done online. These transactions are being done by appointment only. Only half of the customer service desks are open to help limit crowd sizes and practice social-distancing guidelines.
As part of the governor’s first update of the week, it was announced 583 additional people have tested positive for COVID-19. That brings the state’s total to 20,507 individuals. There were an additional 19 deaths reported since the last update from the state, bringing this total to 1,151.
There are also 113 additional people who have died that showed symptoms of COVID-19 but a test was not done.
Since the state’s last update, on Friday, an additional 4,471 Hoosiers were tested. There have now been 113,297 people tested for the virus.
