The Jackson County Board of Supervisors approved a Proclamation of Existence of Local Emergency related to COVID-19 during their March 16, 2020 meeting. This will allow the County to ask for State resources in dealing with the virus.
As of this morning, there were no confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Virus in Jackson County. This is expected to change as more people are getting tested. The Board of Supervisors, along with the Office of Emergency Services, and County Administrator office, are working closely with other cities and health related agencies within the County and State to make the best decisions regarding necessary precautions and future actions based on current information.
At this time (3/16/2020), County offices will remain open to allow residents to conduct required business, however, there are some exceptions listed below by Department. Discussion is also underway to reduce personnel and access to some office related services in the future. We will send out updates as those decisions are made. In the meantime, we want to strongly discourage residents from social gatherings of 10 or more people and limit unnecessary trips to County facilities.
During this time, steps are being taken to keep our facilities clean and limit person-to-person contact as much as possible in an effort to keep everyone safe.
The County is also asking residents to help us in these efforts by doing the following:
If you have a case pending and have an attorney, contact your attorney for updates regarding changes to court dates. Otherwise, please contact the relevant court if you have not already been contacted.
