March 26, 2020: Mayor Chris Mosley and Chairman of the Grady County Commissioners Board Ralph Beard issue joint letter to citizens

On behalf of the City of Chickasha and the Grady County Commissioners, we would like to take a moment today to provide encouragement and guidance as we walk through the coronavirus pandemic together.

First, we must note how proud we are of our county’s first responders. Chickasha Police, Chickasha Fire, the Grady County Fire Department and the Grady County Sheriff’s office are working diligently to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our communities. We would be remiss if we did not mention the doctors, nurses and others in the medical field who live and work in our area. The sacrifices these professionals make for our community can put their own safety at risk, and we would like to express our sincere appreciation for their commitment, especially during this time.

March 24, 2020: Governor Stitt amends Executive Order 2020-07

Due to a confirmed case of COVID-19 in Grady County, Chickasha is included in both the statewide measures and the measures requiring restaurants to provide take-out and delivery options only, the closure of all bars, and the closure of all businesses not identified as being within a critical infrastructure sector. Please click here for more information

As a reminder, the City of Chickasha falls under the direction of Governor Kevin Stitt’s Executive Order 2020-07. As of Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 11:59 p.m., all non-essential businesses must close their doors for 21 days. ⁣

It is the City of Chickasha’s obligation to enforce Executive Order 2020-07. We hope to do so with as minimal contact as possible. We ask that you read the order and follow it. While the City of Chickasha will be looking for voluntarily compliance, the Chickasha Police Department is authorized to use the full force of the law to enforce Governor Stitt’s Executive Order. ⁣

This list shows those businesses who are deemed essential: https://bit.ly/3ak03j9. Governor Stitt has amended this list to add additional business sectors, including medical marijuana dispensaries and hotels. To view the amended list, please visit https://bit.ly/3am48Dk. We expect this list will be amended again, and we will share updates as they are received. If you have questions about if your business is considered essential, please contact the Office of the Governor. ⁣

UPDATE: Click here to view the list of industries deemed essential. 

We realize that some employees, such as defense contractors, may have a letter from their employer stating that they are considered essential personnel. We encourage you to keep any letters from official government sources, as well as employee IDs for health workers and others in critical infrastructure businesses, with you, so that if you are detained, we can verify the validity and allow you to move on to your destination. ⁣

If you believe that a business is operating outside of the Executive Order, do not call 9-1-1. Instead, you may call the non-emergency number at (405) 222-6050. ⁣

Gatherings of 10 or more people in any public space, including parks, will be asked to disperse if found. The Executive Order does not prohibit individuals from taking care of necessary tasks, such as shopping for essentials, picking up medication and exercising. ⁣

We would like to again remind citizens that the only official, vetted communication sources for the City of Chickasha are as follows: chickasha.org, facebok.com/ChickashaOK, twitter.com/ChickashaOK and instagram.com/ChickashaOK.
