MURPHYSBORO – Jackson County Board Chairman Keith Larkin and Jackson County Sheriff Bob Burns announce the Jackson County Courthouse will be returning to its regular hours of operation 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday beginning Monday, Feb. 22.
With the reduction in the number of active COVID-19 cases, the Jackson County Board, the Jackson County Sheriff, and Jackson County Health officials have determined that it is in the best interest of County employees and the general public that the public hours of operation be returned.
Face masks are required for entrance into the Courthouse.
The Jackson County Courts remain open. Most hearings are being conducted via zoom in a virtual courtroom. All persons with upcoming cases should have received notices explaining how to access the virtual courtroom. A limited number of essential and emergency hearings will continue to be conducted in-person during Courthouse hours as indicated above and at other times as necessary. The Office of the Courts will be open via telephone during normal business hours.
The Jackson County Board and the Jackson County Sheriff remain in constant contact with local emergency and health related agencies in order to continually evaluate the COVID-19 situation. We will continue to make changes as necessary and communicate those changes to the general public and citizens of Jackson County. We ask your cooperation and patience as we work to minimize the risk to those utilizing the courthouse and county government.
