Effective 7:30 p.m. tonight, the Muskogee City Council has ordered all bars and dine-in restaurants closed.

Drive-through, curbside, takeout and delivery services are permitted. Institutional and in-house food cafeterias are also permitted.

All bars, brew pubs, breweries, tasting rooms, clubs and other alcoholic beverage consumption premises are also ordered closed, except those that operate curbside, delivery or pickup food service.

The order also closes all gymnasiums, fitness centers, recreation centers, indoor sports facilities, theaters, cinemas, performance venues and museums, as well as bingo halls, bowling alleys, skating rinks and recreational facilities.

The order also authorizes city agents to enter onto private property and “abate any and all existing and imminent threats to the life, safety, health and welfare of the city or its residents, including mandatory evacuation, isolation, or quarantine of persons or areas.”

The action “shall remain in effect until further action or order by the city council of Muskogee.”

UPDATE 10:16 A.M.: City Attorney Roy Tucker clarified the part of the document that seems to give police the ability to enter any home for any reason:

The emergency declared by the resolution is based upon the COVID-19 pandemic, so the powers referenced arise from, and can only be exercised in dealing with, the pandemic, nothing else. This was the same language included in the emergency declaration back in May for the flood.
