Courthouse guests will be required to wear a mask for the foreseeable future.
Many visitors to the Rogers County Courthouse have asked when the COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, but Rogers County Commissioners said it won't be for a while.
"There seems to be spikes across the country of COVID-19 cases. Questions have been asked to me 'how long we are still going to be required to wear a mask in the courthouse?' I don't see anybody relaxing that," said Commissioner Ron Burrows. "I would say we're going to stay vigilant in that regard. In public spaces, the hallways, coming into the courthouse, I think we need to stay vigilant in what we're doing."
Commissioner Dan Delozier added, "We opened the courthouse to let the public back in. We have a responsibility to make sure that we do everything we can to keep the numbers down. Knock on wood, so far I don't know of any employees that have tested positive. So what we're doing, I think it's helping."
