Muscogee (Creek) Nation extends temporary closure of River Spirit Casino Resort and 8 regional casinos until April 15

Nation commits to maintaining $3.4 million bi-monthly payroll for 2,200 casino employees.

Muscogee (Creek) Nation Principal Chief David Hill and River Spirit Casino Resort Chief Executive Officer Pat Crofts announced today the extended temporary closure of all nine Muscogee (Creek) Nation Casinos, including River Spirit Casino Resort until April 15, 2020.

The temporary closure began 10 days ago on Monday, March 16.

While River Spirit Casino Resort and the other casino properties had no reported cases of COVID-19, the temporary closure is a result of guidelines issued by the National Center for Disease Control to reduce exposure to the virus. “As always, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation prioritizes the health and well-being of our citizens, our employees and our guests above all else,” said Chief Hill.

“We are committed to following the suggestions issued by federal health officials to ensure we are safeguarding the public. Challenging times require tough decisions, but you cannot make progress without making decisions. Extending the temporary closure of our casinos is an example of how the Nation can do its part during this epic crisis.” Chief Hill and officials confirmed the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Casinos and River Spirit Casino Resort will continue to pay its 2,200 employees through April 15.

This equates to a $3.4 million payroll every two weeks. “As a primary employer in the City of Tulsa and throughout many smaller communities in northeast Oklahoma, we want to continue to support our employees to best of our ability,” said Crofts. “We have already faced great adversity together during the abrupt closure last year due to the historic flooding and its aftermath.

We want to do everything we can to ease the anxiety and financial burden while our employees are home with their loved ones at this critical time.” The temporary closure includes casinos in Beggs, Holdenville, Eufaula, Bristow, Checotah, Okemah and River Spirit Casino Resort in Tulsa. The closure includes the travel plaza casinos in Muskogee and Okmulgee, but the convenience stores remain open to serve the public in need of essentials.

NEO Moving Classes Online for the Remainder of the Spring/Cancelling Commencement

Administrators at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) will move all previously scheduled face-to-face and hybrid courses online for the remainder of the spring semester in response to the rapidly developing COVID-19, or coronavirus, pandemic. In addition to moving classes online, NEO will cancel its spring commencement and nurse pinning.

“Our goal is to continue our efforts to deliver a quality education and serve our students the best we can,” said Dr. Kyle J. Stafford, NEO president. “It is frustrating to know our spring semester has been disrupted by COVID-19, but we are doing our part to follow state and federal guidelines and reduce the spread of COVID-19.”

NEO has also closed campus to visitors, locked down campus buildings, and implemented a temporary telecommuting/work-from-home program that will allow campus operations to continue through internet and phone.

In addition, NEO has asked the limited number of students still in the residence halls to leave campus by April 1. Students moving off campus may be reimbursed, depending upon payment methods for housing and meals and reimbursements are anticipated to be completed during late April.

“As a rural college, we understand some students have circumstances preventing them from leaving campus, and we are committed to assisting them,” added Dr. Stafford. “But we are asking all residential students not to return to campus until we contact them to arrange collection of their personal items.”

Clark Youth Theatre

Hi Friends!
I hope this email finds you well and healthy!
"HOLD PLEASE"
This is a phrase we hear often in scene work and technical rehearsals in theatre.

Unfortunately, due to current circumstances, we are experiencing a "HOLD" at this time. Clark is unable to resume classes and rehearsals this week on March 23rd as we had hoped. We will follow the Tulsa Public School Closures until April 6th, and reevaluate. If at any time before then it seems safe to resume meeting, we will notify you immediately. However, since Clark serves well over 30 schools in the Tulsa area, we will proceed with an abundance of caution in order to keep our Clarkies and their families safe.

Fortunately, we live in an age where digital communication is the norm. Because of this, we are excited to announce that those engaged in classes will see a new page on our website Monday or Tuesday of this week listing class assignments for Viral Marketing, Improv, Homeschool Drama, Art, Musical Theatre. etc. Feel free to share these with friends and family, and certainly share your creativity! If you would like to, please film your assignment (phone is fine!) and upload to a Google Drive, giving this email permission to view. You might even make it onto our FaceBook page! We encourage you to stay creative, stay positive, and share the creativity!

Thank you for your understanding - part of being a good performer is the flexibility to know when to "HOLD" for the safety of the cast a crew while a few things get worked out. Now is such a time for ALL of us. We at Clark have great hope that all of our Clarkies will get through this "HOLD" with positivity, creativity and health!

Warmly,
Tammy Slack Executive Director Clark Youth Theatre

New dates for the annual tradition are September 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th. In the midst of heightened concern, health and safety are the Chamber’s top priorities and at the heart of every decision made.

At this time, it is crucial the Chamber does their part to help reduce the transmission of COVID19. “We are all having to make difficult decisions in this time. As we all pray and hope that the closures are not necessary through May, the Broken Arrow Chamber does not feel it would be wise to encourage the gathering of this size even if the restrictions are lifted by May. We expect that in September we will be able to come together as a community and celebrate what we have overcome,” states Jennifer Conway, President and CEO of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce and EDC.

The festival schedule is as follows: Thursday, September 3: 5pm to 10pm Friday, September 4: 5pm to 11pm Saturday, September 5: 10am to 11pm Sunday, September 6: 12pm to 6pm *Rides close 1 hour before festival closes* On Saturday, September 5th, the festival’s main events will take place.

THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA ADJUSTMENTS TO CLASSES, RESEARCH, AND EVENTS

OU Norman Campus Classes. Norman campus will remain online for the remainder of the semester. Students are encouraged to visit ou.edu/learnanywhere [ou.edu] for further information and resources on attending classes online. Faculty may visit ou.edu/teachanywhere [ou.edu] for instructional resources.

OU Health Sciences Center Classes. Students enrolled in Health Sciences Center programs have received direct communications from their colleges about online instruction and modifications to clinical and community-based instruction. Students in these programs with questions should contact their colleges directly. Additional information is available at students.ouhsc.edu/coronavirus.

OU-Tulsa Classes. Norman-based programs will remain online for the remainder of the semester. HSC programs will receive direct communications from their colleges regarding both classes and clinical rotations.

Research Enterprise. We are committed to continuing our research mission while making sure we take steps to keep members of our community safe. We will provide guidance on this in the coming days.

Graduation Ceremonies. The ceremonies are postponed, and we are working to modify them. We are actively exploring ways we can honor our graduates and their achievements at an appropriate time. This will likely look very different, perhaps even virtual, with an opportunity to participate in an in-person ceremony when it is safe to do so. We hope to reschedule these events for later in the summer, and we will communicate updates as we have them.

University-related Events. All in-person events with greater than 10 attendees on all three campuses are suspended until at least May 11. Our decision is based on recommendations from the CDC and our state and national leaders. This restriction includes events that are not University-sponsored as well, including conferences, symposia, and social gatherings. This does not preclude small internal meetings, where social distancing should be the touchstone. The OU Athletics Department has suspended all athletics competitions, as well as all out-of-season practices and workouts, until further notice. More information on athletics events may be found at soonersports.com.

GUIDELINES FOR ON-CAMPUS HOUSING

Norman Campus Residential Housing. We will have a reduced occupancy model for on-campus housing for the remainder of the spring semester with the exception of Kraettli and Traditions apartments. Certainly, students who have no other housing option will remain in on-campus housing, and we are committed to assisting all residents, including our international student community, in every possible way. On-campus housing residents can expect to receive specific information from OU Housing in the coming days. Regrettably, the rapid pace of this unfolding crisis does not allow us to have the answers for all questions at this time. We will, however, address all questions as quickly as is possible.

GUIDANCE FOR EMPLOYEES

Telecommuting. Telecommuting is strongly encouraged across all three campuses. Visit HR’s Coronavirus and the Workplace guidelines [hr.ou.edu] for more information. Employees from all three campuses should consult supervisors for position-specific details.

On the Norman campus, the five-day closure that started on March 15 comes to a close Friday, March 20. Wherever compatible with continuing operations, all supervisors should institute telecommuting plans for staff through the end of the spring semester. Any Norman campus faculty, staff, and students who return to campus are urged to use caution and practice social distancing and proper hygiene.

Student Employees. Managers are also encouraged to develop and implement telework plans for student employees and graduate assistants where the telework plan supports University operations.

Counseling Services. The counseling center will remain open during the semester and can provide services by phone or ZOOM. OU counselors can be reached at (405) 325-2911 to make an appointment.

COVID-19 presents an unprecedented challenge, but I’m confident as ever in the OU community’s ability to navigate the coming days with care, wisdom, and a collective resolve. My profound thanks go to all our students, faculty, staff, and residents for your patience and understanding.
