In an effort to protect the health and well-being of our citizens, a Civil Emergency has been declared in the City of Jackson to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. As a precaution, City Hall and all non-essential city government offices, including our Senior Community Centers and Early Childhood Development Centers will be closed until March 31, 2020. Public gatherings of 10 or more people are prohibited. Bars have been ordered to close and restaurants may only operate as take-out, drive-through, or delivery service only. Please continue to exercise proper hygiene and social distancing. Information for more resources may be found here.

Accessibility

Jackson, MS is committed to access for all.

Accessibility is an ongoing process, and here are steps we have taken:

  • Accessible forms: "aria" attributes, descriptive labels, tab-able interfaces
  • Semantic markup and additional "aria" descriptors on UI components
  • Tab-able navigational elements
  • "Skiplinks" to important page elements and website sitemap
  • Required "alt" descriptions on images
  • Font size adjustment
