To help fight the spread of the coronavirus, The Jefferson County Commission today decided to close the county courthouse and other county government offices to the public for two weeks, until April 1.

County employees will be available to assist the public by telephone or online. “The commission is confident we can continue to serve the community through the use of these tools,” according to a notice the county commission released.

The offices of the county sheriff, clerk, commission office, assessor and judicial functions are affected by the policy. 

Citizens can reach offices online through the website County staff may also be reached by calling 304-728-3284.

After April 1, the commission will re-evaluate whether the office closure should be extended.
