Jefferson County Makes Changes to Stop COVID-19 Spread

Jefferson County is actively working to prevent, slow, and stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus on our community. To protect county officials and those they serve, the county decided to limit limit contact and move to conducting as much business as possible online and by phone. County business intends to continue through phone calls, facsimile, email, online payments, and through regular mail and drop boxes at buildings. For the foreseeable future Jefferson County buildings are restricting access to employees, and asking that those in the community make prearranged appointments for urgent business.

There are a few exceptions to this new mode of business. The Sheriff’s Office and the County Courthouse will remain open to the public. It is also important to note that Jefferson County Public Health will continue to offer preventative health services, not related to COVID-19. They ask that clients check-in via phone from the parking lot, to then be escorted into the building.

The county has provided a list of contact numbers for each department, seen below. We also encourage you to visit the county website for any further questions about county services at
