On March 24, 2020, Governor Stitt issued an executive order that states non-essential businesses in counties with a positive COVID-19 case must close for 21 days effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. Canadian County has positive COVID-19 cases and is therefore affected by the executive order.

The City will constantly monitor and reassess the situation to promote the health and safety of its citizens.
