Access to some city buildings restricted to employees only during pandemic, public services not affected
Most City of Oklahoma City office buildings are restricting public access to protect visitors and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, but public services continue uninterrupted.
The restriction affects City Hall and the other downtown Oklahoma City campus office buildings, and other City staff workplaces normally open to visitors. Signs on the buildings will provide contact information for people who need it. The public will regain access when guidance from public health officials indicate it’s safe.
People can still access the exterior pay windows at Municipal Court and the first-floor counter in the Police Headquarters.
Many City offices that regularly do face-to-face business with the public have also put updated information on their websites to make it easier for people to get things done without having to enter the buildings.
Tuesday's Oklahoma City Council meeting is being conducted by teleconference, with other City public meetings to follow. Instructions on how to listen or sign up to speak will be posted with each meeting agenda at okc.gov/agenda.
Departments are making operational adjustments to ensure the continuation of the critical public services for residents, businesses and visitors. Staff is making accommodations to do as much business as possible online or by phone.
City staff will make every reasonable attempt to accommodate people who show up to closed City office buildings and use the posted contact information indicating they need to speak with someone in person.
