MUSKOGEE — The Muskogee Board of County Commissioners announced, starting July 23, face masks will be required at the Muskogee County Courthouse.

A rise in coronavirus cases throughout the state of Oklahoma continues to have cities, businesses and local agencies require face masks in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus.

County officials said this requirement is for both the County Courthouse and the County Services Building in Muskogee. Muskogee County judges will also be implementing this policy.

According to an official press release, the policy is as follows:

  • All persons entering the Courthouse complex, which encompasses the Courthouse and the County Services Building, shall wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while in common areas of the buildings.
  • Elected Officials and Supervisors shall establish mask wearing procedures for their employees that govern whether a mask is necessary at the employee’s work station.

Officials say the public is encouraged to being a face mask when they are conducting business at the Muskogee County Courthouse and County Services Building.
