Coweta Now under Shelter in Place Order
Coweta is the latest northeastern Oklahoma community to go under a shelter in place order to limit the spread of COVID-19.
It took effect at midnight. All residents of the city or unincorporated areas of Wagoner County within five miles of city limits are ordered to stay at home through April 30.
Similar to many other cities' orders, Coweta residents can leave home to take care of essential needs like buying groceries, care for family members or exercise while maintaining social distancing. Events or gatherings of more than 10 people are prohibited, including religious services.
The city won’t shut off utility services for nonpayment during the shelter in place order, but late fees, interest and penalties will accrue and be due immediately when the order expires.
