As far as gun and ammo shops, State Rep. Matt Meredith, D-Tahlequah, said he believes those shops can remain open, given they are considered services to augment public safety and personal protection.

 

The Cherokee County commissioners gathered with other officials in a "call of the chair meeting" to discuss COVID-19 on March 25. The courthouse is still on partial lockdown with limited access to the public.

 

District 2 Commissioner Mike Brown said most of Tahlequah is going to remain open, but with very limited access.

 

Day cares and child care facilities are essential and will remain open, but commissioners said if parents are able to work from home, their children need to also be at home so day cares are not overwhelmed.

 

“If you’re supplying a need to an essential employee who has to go to work and who has a child, then that makes you essential to that employee,” said District 3 Commissioner Clif Hall.

Anyone with questions can contact a member of the task force or the Tahlequah Daily Press, and staffers will try to find the answer.
