Jenks Mayor Issues Emergency Proclamation and Order Limiting and Closing Certain Commercial Business
After receiving updated information today about COVID-19 and further evidence of community spread, the Mayor, with City Council’s input, has issued an Emergency Proclamation or Order to limit and close specific businesses in the City of Jenks. This goes into effect Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 11:59 PM.
As much as City Leadership and City Council value and support Jenks businesses, the risk of COVID-19 spread in our community is too great. We must keep our community’s safety our priority.
In summary, all restaurants must convert to take-out, delivery or curbside service. All bars and gyms (any indoor performance facility) are closed until further notice. Specific businesses are listed in proclamation- please see attached Proclamation and Order to see included and excluded businesses and full language.
This decision was not made lightly. Please support Jenks businesses during this time by utilizing their modified services.
