Phase 3 of Reopening Plan begins June 1

Added 5/29/2020 at 1:30 p.m.

On April 22, 2020, Gov. Kevin Stitt’s Bounce Back Advisory group issued the Governor’s Open Up and Recover Safely (OURS) Plan implementing a three-phased approach to open Oklahoma’s economy starting on April 24, 2020. The plan is based on scientific modeling from public health experts and is designed to mitigate the risk of the resurgence of COVID-19. It provides a detailed plan for the reopening of Oklahoma’s economy that the City of Broken Arrow has been using to implement its reopening plan.

Phase 1 had two parts. On April 24, 2020, Part 1 of the first phase began which allowed certain personal care businesses to open. On May 1, 2020, Part 2 of the first phase began. This reopened dining areas in restaurants, entertainment venues, movie theaters, sporting venues, gyms, places of worship, and tattoo parlors. On May 8, 2020, the City opened additional City-owned athletic facilities to allow sports groups to practice. Phase 2 began on May 15, 2020, which allowed bars, church nurseries, organized sports, weddings, and funerals to resume.

Following the OURS Plan and seeing that hospital and incident rates have remained at a manageable level for 14 days, the City of Broken Arrow will enter Phase 3 on June 1.

As we move into Phase 3 of the OURS plan, the limits on social gatherings will be lifted.

The City is pleased to announce that we are opening the Rose District Farmers Market on June 6, the first Saturday in June. It will be open from 8 a.m.-noon at the Rose District Plaza.

In addition to the Farmers Market, the following services and facilities will also open in Broken Arrow in Phase 3:

  • Central Park Community Center and Nienhuis Park Community Center,
  • All remaining outdoor park amenities such as basketball courts, volleyball courts, playgrounds, pavilions, and shelters,
  • Splash pads,
  • Rose District interactive water feature,
  • Ray Harral Nature Center,
  • Court Clerk window at the Justice Center, Operations Building lobby window, and Park Grove Cemetery service committal area.
  • Nienhuis Aquatic Facility (NAF)*.

*Please note: The City is planning to open at least one pool (NAF) this season, and will update the community if additional facilities are able to open. The opening date for NAF will be announced soon.

Municipal Court will resume on June 2. There are new guidelines that court visitors must follow including social distancing and face coverings.

We have resumed normal billing and collections process for utilities services. If you missed or had late payments in the past couple months, please contact the Utilities Customer Service office for help setting up a payment plan. They can be reached at 918-259-8409 or by email at utilities@brokenarrowok.gov.

All remaining public meetings for the City of Broken Arrow will also transition to in-person meetings in Phase 3.

The City will continue following the Governor’s Safer at Home order for vulnerable populations, which goes through May 31. As a reminder: this plan is voluntary, and we encourage businesses to open and residents to get out when they feel it is safe to do so. All businesses and activities that are reopening should continue following CDC guidelines for safety such social distancing and good hygiene practices. The Governor has announced that limited visitation to hospitals may be reinstated at the discretion of the facility, and visitation at nursing homes and long-term care facilities will remain suspended except for end-of-life situations until explicitly lifted by a future executive order.

Residents and businesses with questions can continue using the City’s online COVID-19 resource center.

Added 5/14/2020 at 4:45 p.m.

Following the Governor’s plan and seeing that hospital and incident rates have remained at a manageable level for 14 days, the City of Broken Arrow will enter Phase 2 on Friday, May 15, 2020.

These additional businesses in Broken Arrow can reopen May 15, with certain restrictions in place:

  • Bars;
  • Church nurseries;
  • Organized sports activities; and
  • Weddings and funerals may resume.

As we move into Phase 2 of the OURS plan, the limits on social gatherings will change from 10 people in Phase 1 to 50 people in Phase 2.

Reminder: This plan is voluntary. No one is required to reopen, and we encourage businesses to open when they feel it is safe to do so. All businesses and activities that are reopening will need to follow guidelines for safety, such as masks and other sanitation standards. Everyone should maintain social distancing and good hygiene practices when they are out. All nursing homes and hospitals remain closed to visitors until Phase 3 of the reopening plan.

Consistent with the Governor’s Open Up and Recover Safely (OURS) plan, if hospital and incident rates remain at a manageable level for 14 days, we move to Phase 3.
