On March 13, 2020, on recommendation of the State Health Officer, Governor Kay Ivey declared a state public health emergency.

Effective March 17, 2020, Jefferson County Health Officer Dr. Mark Wilson issued an order for Jefferson County prohibiting all gatherings of 25 persons or more, or gatherings of any size that cannot maintain a consistent six-foot distance between persons until further notice.

Effective March 17, 2020, as of 5 pm, State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris issued an order for Blount, Saint Clair, Shelby, Tuscaloosa, and Walker Counties prohibiting all gatherings of 25 persons or more, or gatherings of any size that cannot maintain a consistent six-foot distance between persons until further notice.

In accordance with the order of the Jefferson County Health Officer, effective March 17, 2020, and the State Health Officer, effective March 17, 2020 at 5pm, all shops and salons in the above listed counties are prohibited from performing services on clients; until further notice, due to the inability to maintain a consistent six-foot distance between the service provider and the client.

In addition, this applies to private schools licensed by the Jefferson County Barber Commission (JCBC) unless they have less than 25 people including staff and students and can maintain a consistent six-foot distance between persons.

JCBC is a professional licensing board and does not have the authority to mandate or recommend the closure of our licensed Barbershops or schools; this authority lies with the Governor in coordination with State and County health officials. JCBC licensees are required to follow orders issued by the Governor and/or State or County Health Officials.

State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris has encouraged all counties throughout the state to follow suit. As the health and safety of our current and prospective licensees, consumers, and employees is a priority for JCBC, we strongly encourage our Barbershops and schools to follow the CDC guidelines in place for preventing the spread of coronavirus, as well as the guidelines established by Governor Ivey and ADPH.

Just FYI- I just went downtown to renew my license for next year and they are by appointment only for special circumstances. If your license is current/up to date you will be able to renew online.
Will there be any new regulations or guidelines from the Jeffco Barber Commission or Jeffco Health Office concerning the Barber shops protective equipment for both Barbers and Customers. If so, could we be notified as soon as possible in order to prepare for re-opening in a timely manner?
Head’s up! Don’t try to go to the Barber Commission today like I did!
the house at 1744 Sam Drive is rental. The tenants moved out the first week of July and left garbage piled on the curb. I sent an email to my district commissioner on July 27 and to date I have not received a reply. My wife called the county about this numerous times with no results. Is there not any penalty for leaving trash as this?
When are we able to renew our license for 2018? I can’t find it on my profile. Thanks in advance!
How could you grade my business outside of operating hours. Someone needs to contact me a.s.a.p
I have my 2017 journeyman ($50) receipt, but the website is trying charge me ($50) to become a member. Why is that???
