The Jackson County administrative offices have closed except for essential public safety and health functions.

The county's E911, EMA, EMS, Sheriff, Jail, correctional institute, solid waste, senior center meal deliveries and animal control will continue to function, but will be closed to the public.

The county's courthouse is open, but operating on a limited basis, officials said.

The move comes in response to the state's executive order by Gov. Brian Kemp to shelter-in-place.
