WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - Hundreds of people lined up outside RMV locations in Massachusetts on Wednesday despite coronavirus concerns that have prompted officials to urge the public to practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings of people.

Eight of the state’s 30 RMV locations, including Brockton, Worcester, and Boston, reopened after temporarily shutting down to serve customers who were unable to do business online or by mail.

Lines of people closely packed together could be seen wrapping around many of the RMV buildings as they waited to get inside.

The number of people allowed into the buildings was limited. All locations provided hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes.

The RMV is urging the public to practice social distancing by traveling alone and putting off any business that isn’t urgent.
