JEFFERSON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — In an effort to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office announced boat ramp access for the Head of the Wacissa River will be closed to out of area travelers and large groups beginning Saturday, April 4.

The announcement comes after Governor Ron DeSantis's stay -at-home order, effective midnight, April 2.
