CC)—The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners will meet in Regular Session this evening. Commissioners are scheduled to consider a resolution making the 100 block of Park an official public forum specifically for the full exercise of First Amendment rights, as well as creating a new permitting process for non-commercial events held in the space. The resolution appears to be a response to counter a legal nonprofit’s recent request that the city cease infrastructure work on Park, including excavating a 10-foot-deep hole for a Christmas tree in the middle of the street, where The One will take place later this year. All residents would be able to use the venue, according to the resolution after receiving a permit. The One is set to debut Nov. 26 as part of Enid Lights Up the Plains, with numerous free, religious Christmas events planned through New Year’s around the 140-foot Christ Tree in the middle of Park, which will be closed off to traffic. Commissioners will meet in study session at 5:00 p.m., followed by their regular meeting at 6:30. Both meetings will be held in Council Chambers of the City Administration Building on West Garriott. Both meetings are open to the public.

NM)--Enid Public Schools will continue to not require students or staff quarantine due to possible COVID-19 exposure, unless ordered to do so by local or state health officials. Superintendent Darrell Floyd said during Monday’s school board meeting, EPS is not mandating quarantines because last year’s guidelines kept so many students and staff out of school for up to 14 days at a time. He said the policy wouldn’t be changed unless the district was required to do so by the Oklahoma State Department of Health. EPS board members decided not to take further action on the district’s current COVID policy, thereby leaving it in place on Monday. Floyd said discussion of the policy likely would come up each month, reiterating the plan of primarily leaving health decisions up to students’ families, in lieu of any COVID restrictions in place this year. Those who’ve tested positive for COVID are recommended to remain home for 10 days from when symptoms first appeared. Anyone sick at home, including with COVID, is then allowed to return to school once they’ve been fever-free for 24 hours without help from medication. Masks are not required this year on campus, following the state Senate bill that became law July 1 prohibiting mandates of any kind related to COVID in public schools in Oklahoma. A temporary injunction on the law is in place, however, while it’s being argued before Oklahoma County district court.
