The Tulsa County Courthouse is opening back up for business on Tuesday. County Commissioners passed a resolution back in April to close the courthouse until midnight on May 5th. So on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. they plan to reopen to the public.
Even though the courthouse is reopening Tuesday, staff here are still encouraging people to call or do business electronically if they can so they can limit the amount of people inside.
You’re also encouraged to call first because even though the courthouse is reopening, as some offices inside will remain closed.
Tulsa County District Courts are still closed through May 15, 2020, at the direction of the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Courthouse staff say most departments can conduct business online or over the phone; so, they’re encouraging people to continue doing that during this initial reopening phase and use coming here to the actual courthouse as a last resort.
Visitors are also encouraged to wear masks and will be required to answer a series of questions from Tulsa County Sheriff's Deputies before entering.
Some of those questions include: have you been in contact with someone who is sick, do you have symptoms, have you traveled outside of Oklahoma, and a few others.
They say they’ve also enhanced their cleaning procedures inside.
Tulsa county officials say they are continuing to monitor the situation and will evaluate the need for changes through out this process.
