As the number of new coronavirus infections across the greater Washington region jumped to a two-month high Wednesday, in Maryland, state officials said an employee at the Department of Transportation’s Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) in Prince George’s County died of the coronavirus, and four other workers in the department’s Largo branch office have tested positive. “My heart goes out to our members who are dealing with this crisis,” Mildred Womble, the AFSCME MVA local president and Council 3 executive vice president, said in a statement. “This was all preventable if management had taken the safety of their employees seriously.”
