The Arkansas State Revenue Office in Fayetteville is closed to the public “until further notice,” according to a sign we found on the door Thursday.

The Fayetteville office is located at 3086 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

The sign directed residents to the DMV offices in Springdale and Lincoln.

We are not sure when the office closed, and the sign posted on the door does not give a reason for the closure.

We have reached out to the office of the district manager, and to state DMV officials for more information, and we will update this post once we hear back from them.

Update: According to Scott Hardin, spokesperson for the DFA, the office closed Friday, July 31 after officials became aware that employees of the revenue office may have been exposed to COVID-19. Hardin said officials made the decision to close the office for disinfection, and testing of team members “out of abundance of caution.”

Since them, Hardin said, testing has uncovered at least one positive case of COVID-19, with other tests of employees still pending.

He added that the agency is hopeful the office will be cleared to reopen on Monday, Aug. 10.
