LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - Lawton Mayor Stan Booker said he plans to meet with LPS’ superintendent after a local epidemiologist recommended schools go virtual for a week after Thanksgiving and New Year’s.
At Tuesday’s meeting, mayor and Council members were joined by local health officials to discuss the pandemic for the first time in over a month.
CCMH epidemiologist Chris Godman spoke -- and recommended remote learning soon.
With a focus on keeping businesses open, council also directed staff to develop a policy that holds the business and the individual responsible for wearing masks inside -- which will be voted on at the next council meeting.
Council also approved the maximum of 300-thousand dollars from the Emergency Fund to speed up the tree limb removal from the most recent ice storm.
