EATONTOWN –  The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission has shut down its Eatontown licensing and regional center for nearly two weeks after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The center will be cleaned and remain closed until Saturday, Oct. 24, “once contact tracers have cleared a sufficient number of employees to reopen or any required quarantine is complete,” the MVC said in a statement Monday evening.

The employee who tested positive was last inside the facility on Friday, Oct. 9, the agency said.
