The implementation of VEIP stations is a necessary part of implementing the new CDC guidelines. The procedure takes about 5 minutes and includes a series of screening questions and a vehicle temperature scan.
The Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration has announced that VEIP stations will reopen in November, bringing the total number to four. The shutdown affected several VEIP stations throughout the state and many of these were used as drive-through coronavirus testing sites. After the reopening of VEIP stations in November, customers have received new dates to bring their cars in for a test. During the reopening of these stations, the re-testing process will continue to run as usual.
The reopening of VEIP stations
The reopening of VEIP stations is an important step for Maryland motorists and drivers. MDOT is taking steps to improve the safety of all VEIP stations in the state. The new regulations will require employees to wear face masks and maintain a six-foot distance.
The Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration announced that VEIP stations will reopen in the first week of January. This suspension will last for two weeks, from Monday, December 21, to the start of the New Year. It will also be making calls to those who had scheduled appointments for the affected locations.
On the other hand, self-service VEIP kiosks will remain open. However, the MDOT MVA is not closing all ten VEIP kiosks on Saturday. A few self-service VEIP station locations will not be reopening on Sunday.
The MDOT MVA maintains
The MDOT MVA maintains a list of all VEIP stations in the state. Those that are closed on Saturday are advised to find another location that is open. This will be a great way to save money while getting the VEIP test done. In addition to this, the VEIP stations are free of charge and will offer same-day testing. The MDOT MVA will not close any veIP kiosks on Saturday.
The VEIP stations are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Wednesday, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. The inspections are free and take about ten minutes. The MDOT has also provided a list of locations in other states. Those in Maryland have to go to these VEIP stations to get the test. A few of the VEIP stations are available at various locations in the state.
The Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration has reopened VEIP stations after closing them in March due to the emergence of a coronavirus. Previously, many VEIP stations were only drive-through coronavirus testing sites. These VEIP stations will now reopen on the first Monday of each month. Fortunately, a number of the locations will serve customers who have previously scheduled their tests during these months.
The MDOT MVA is responsible for emergency business needs and will continue to enforce COVID-19 safety measures at its VEIP stations. In addition to a face mask, customers must maintain a six-foot distance from employees and participate in a temperature scan. Further, the MDOT MVA has reopened VEIP stations that were previously closed. This closure will affect the VEIP testing at all MDOT branches in Maryland.
