A Tennessee Bureau of Investigation tested positive for the coronavirus. This resulted in a delay of background checks in the Volunteer State. Here in Nevada, an air traffic controller at McCarran Airport tested positive and the control tower was shut down for days (it may be still shut down). New York ATC closed for a time and for cleaning overnight due to a controller testing positive. If they can close whole international airports, some of the busiest in the country, they can close background check centers.
Any such closure wouldn't be permanent. The state would probably institute some work from home status or clean the office and re-open, but, there would be plenty of delays. One thing the Dept. of Public Safety could do is farm out the background checks to local law enforcement and just act as the clearing house, but that would expect someone in government to think. I'd bet that DPS leadership could care less if you own a gun.
