Courthouse to have limited access
Access to offices in the Okmulgee County Courthouse is now very limited.
Following Monday’s meeting of the Okmulgee County Board of Commissioners, the changes were instituted as of noon.

•Only the person that must transact the business can enter the building. No other persons will be allowed into the courthouse.
•Temperatures will be taken of all who enter the courthouse. If your temperature is above 99.9, you will denied access.
•If you do not have business that must be conducted in the courthouse, no entrance will be allowed.
