(Hillsboro) Jefferson County government is taking steps to keep their employees as safe as possible with the rise in Covid-19 cases. Jefferson County Executive Dennis Gannon says an employee mandate was issued on Monday night.

Meanwhile, the Jefferson County Courthouse was shut down Tuesday as there was a positive test of Covid-19. Gannon says it’s frustrating.

The Jefferson County Courthouse should be back open for commerce today (Wednesday). You can call the courthouse at (636) 797-6265.
