Oklahoma regulators keep agency headquarters closed until late July

Oklahoma Corporation Commissioners extended an executive order this week keeping the main offices of the agency closed until late in July because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The commission voted in support of a finding  “that the unique circumstances attending the COVID-19 pandemic are ongoing and ever-changing and that the length of time the pandemic will
necessitate the need for responsive measures, such as closure of non-critical infrastructure businesses, remote work, and social distancing, remains unknown at this time.”

Under the order, the Jim Thorpe building that houses the Corporation Commission headquarters will remain closed to the public until July 22.

Much of the state capitol has reopened to the public.
