BREAKING: Jenks residents issued ‘Shelter In Place’ order
A day following the “Shelter In Place” order Saturday from Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum, the City of Jenks has followed in suit Sunday with a “Shelter In Place” order of its own to its citizens.
The order is to protect against continued spread of the Coronavirus.
The Jenks City Council held a special City Council meeting Sunday to discuss and approve ordinance No. 1511, which orders its citizens to “shelter at their residences except to conduct essential activities or to operate essential businesses; imposing social distancing; closing city-owned park facilities but not open spaces; prohibiting social gatherings with anyone outside of the household; requiring self-quarantine of anyone who tests positive for covid-19 and their household; revoking all special event permits through April 16, 2020; providing a penalty; and declaring an emergency.”
City of Jenks residents will not be allowed to leave their homes unless they are going to purchase food, go to a pharmacy or a doctor’s visit, going to exercise outdoors and to go to an essential job.
The order goes into effect at 11:59 p.m. Monday.
