The Jefferson County Courthouse will reopen to the public by appointment only on Monday, May 18th. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting the appropriate county department prior to arrival.

County Judge Gerald Robinson has established a set of new guidelines for entering the building to protect the health of county employees and the public.

Visitors will be required to wear personal protection, specifically masks and gloves. Courthouse security will also take temperature readings using a non-contact thermometer and administer a set of COVID-19 screening questions prior to visitor entry.

All persons are advised to practice physical distance guidelines whenever possible on Courthouse grounds by adhering to six feet of separation from other groups of people not traveling with them. Contact information for each county department is listed on the county website at
