BROKEN ARROW — Officials with the City of Broken Arrow say they plan to implement Gov. Stitt's Bounce Back Plan for reopening the economy.

Broken Arrow is canceling their emergency shelter-in-place order, beginning April 23 at 11:59 p.m., says Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond.

Mayor Thurmond says they will continue with Gov. Stitt's Safer at Home order through May 6 for the vulnerable populations.

“The City Council discussed the local proclamations in place in connection with the pandemic for BA at its meeting last Tuesday night. My fellow City Councilors and myself, as well as our City Manager and his staff feel the governor’s plan is sensible and Broken Arrow will follow a plan consistent with the Governor’s,” Thurmond said.

The City of Broken Arrow, along with the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation, created a task force known as "BA Rising" to work on the recovery plan. Officials say three other recovery task forces have been created: Organizational Operations, CARES Act & Stimulus Opportunities, and Economic Recovery.
