In light of recent events and following the lead of federal and state leadership, the Northwest American Job Centers (AJCs) ask that the public please limit visits to the AJCs. While we request that public access be limited, the AJCs do not foresee any disruption in services. Assistance is available by phone and online at www.Jobs4TN.gov. Contact information for each AJC may be found on our website at https://www.nwtnjobs.org/locations. During this time and with the uncertainty of the spreading of COVID-19, the AJCs encourage all residents to heed extra precaution and to follow the advice and recommendations of the Center of Disease Control (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html):
► Avoid close contact with those who are sick,
► Don’t touch your eyes, mouth or nose, especially with unwashed hands,
► Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds,
► Stay home if you are sick, and
► Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
For more information please see the Department News Release.
In order for our staff to best serve participants in our 9 Northwest Tennessee counties, some centers have relocated or have changed their business hours. Please view the list below to see if your local center is affected:
