Is it OK to drive this vehicle about 7 miles to the shop for repair or should it be towed?

In most cases, it may be the a/c compressor clutch that has stopped working, but it won’t hurt to check the fuses. If you do find a blown fuse, something happened along the electrical circuit that drew a higher current than the circuit was designed for and blew that fuse (so that problem will have to be tracked down). A compressor that may be on it’s way out may cause this type of issue. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and take a closer look at the air conditioning system and offer a more personal diagnosis.
