During Bixby Mayor Brian Guthrie's State of the City on Nov. 12, he said the following statement in regards to a mask mandate:
"Since the COVID-19 onset, Bixby City Council has consistently emphasized the primacy of personal action in any community response plan. At each step of the process – from sheltering in-place in the spring to re-opening in the summer to the return in-person instruction at school – we, as a Council, have reiterated the need for individual vigilance and responsibility. We have supported the efforts of businesses and other public gathering spaces to adopt those sanitizing, distancing, and masking policies that best protect their patrons and guests. Our experience has been that voluntary community actions are just as effective as any mandates without enforcement.
While we understood the case load impact of returning students to the classroom, we have been in full support of the policies and procedures adopted by the Bixby Public Schools, believing that providing as much in-person instruction is critical to the development and success of the next generation. We will continue to advocate businesses and residents to utilize good hand washing and sanitization protocols, social distancing, and mask policies when social distancing is not possible."
