Item #14: Motion was made by Warner to maintain the Judges recommendations for the Courthouse with door being locked, deputy or bailiff giving access and the temperatures being taken by Temp Agency for one more week and that the Collins Building and all other County Buildings be open to the public removing the temperature taker at the Collins Building. The Collins Building entrance will remain the north entrance for one more week. The Board asked Covey Murray, Emergency Management to give an update on the number of cases. Murray stated that we have 5 active cases for Creek County, with 1 new case out of West Tulsa. Max Cook, District Attorney addressed the Board. The Judges are asking that the courthouse continue as recommended for one more week. This circumstance has given us the opportunity to learn and apply what we have learned for the next situation we may have to deal with. I am not sure how effective the temperature taking is, I don't want us to be un-cautious either because it can only take one person to spread it throughout the building. The Judges have resolved the inclement weather plan and are working to complete phase III. Everything has gone fairly well last week with minimal issues. We just ask that we continue the Judges recommendations for one more week. Amanda Vanorsdol spoke to the Board, this week we will have a heavy docket and would like to keep the temperature taker at the door for one more week as well. Bret Bowling, Sheriff stated that he agrees with the monitoring of temperatures for one more week.  Warner and the Board discussed the effectiveness of the temperature taking at the entrances. No one has been turned away over the past week at any office, we are not sure this is an effective measure at this time. Warner and Whitehouse stated they agree with the Judges, there is a lot more people entering the courthouse, than the Collins Building. Mortazavi stated we really didn't have a lot of foot traffic last week like we anticipated. I would be okay with taking the monitoring of the temperatures away from the Collins Building. Stephens stated I just think it is an unnecessary expense that has proven to be ineffective. Now, I think we should still have one entrance for one more week.  The number of cases was discussed amongst the board, Creek County is at 88 with seven deaths. The Board stated I believe we have taken a conservative approach to this point and we have to start moving forward. This may be something we may have to revisit if our numbers go up again. Whitehouse agreed, the Judges have expressed their concern and I cannot go against that. Mortazavi asked if they will continue to spray all buildings twice a week, Murray stated they are working on getting another sprayer so that they can get all buildings done in a faster time period. Vote as follows: Stephens - No, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Public Comment: NONE

Adjournment: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse at 10:00 a.m. to adjourn and meet again 6-1-20. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
