More Green Country cities roll back COVID-19 restrictions, Tulsa holds out

SAPULPA, Okla. — Cities in Green Country that imposed their own sets of COVID-19 restrictions are continuing to roll them back following Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt’s recent decision to lift state-mandated restrictions.

Sapulpa and Glenpool joined other Oklahoma cities by rescinding their respective mask guidelines on Monday night.

Jenks, Sand Springs and Tulsa are the three largest cities in the metro area with mandates still in place.

Tulsa has kept its restrictions in place, including its mask ordinance which expires on April 30.

Mayor G.T. Bynum said he would meet with local health leaders two weeks after people returned from Spring Break to assess the effects travel may have had on the spread of COVID-19.

Since then, Bynum has said a decision on Tulsa’s masking rules is expected next week.
