DB)--Enid Police have identified a man who was found dead on Northern Oklahoma College's Enid campus on Sunday. Officials say they do not believe, at this time, that foul play was involved. Enid Police officers responded to report of a man lying on the ground on the northeast corner of University and Maine just after 10:50 Sunday morning. According to the report, upon arriving officers found 54-year-old Bobby Gordineer, of Enid, deceased. EPD detectives and the Medical Examiner's Officer were requested to the scene, and a preliminary investigation was conducted. EPD Lt. Bryan Hart said Gordineer was not experiencing homelessness, and was not believed to be associated with NOC. The cause of Gordineer's death is unknown, Hart said, but it doesn't look suspicious. Gordineer's body was transported to Oklahoma City for an autopsy.

SB)--District officials say Enid Public Schools board members will decide tonight whether to cut in half the time students and staff should isolate if positive for COVID-19. The board is scheduled to vote to update the district’s COVID-19 policy based on recently revised federal guidelines. The proposed policy update would primarily follow new guidance from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, itself going off COVID guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Under the recommendations, a positive isolation period would be reduced from 10 to five days, either after symptoms are improving and fever has been resolved for 24 hours without medication or if symptoms never developed. Once a positive patient has met the above criteria, they can resume normal activities but should wear a well-fitting mask for an additional five days when around other people. Tonight’s meeting of the Enid School Board will begin at 6:00 in the EPS Administrative Services Center, at 500 S. Independence and is open to the public.

RC)--There will be intermittent lane closures at the intersection of South Grand and West Owen K. Garriott this week. The lane closures will affect the outside and turning lanes of South Grand for short periods and is expected to last approximately one week.

A planned water outage will affect residents of Hunters Hill Apartments and nearby Willow Plaza shopping center, Willow and Cleveland, on Tuesday.

Water services are expected to be affected beginning at 8:00 a.m. and be restored by the end of the day.

 

Beginning Wednesday, traffic at the intersection of West Willow Road and North Cleveland will be impacted with the installation of a new water main.

BD)--Yet another good reason to donate blood. Blood donors will know more about the status of their immunity to COVID-19 thanks to a new antibody testing method offered by the Oklahoma Blood Institute. The new testing is offered through January 31. Individual results will help donors understand their bodies’ immune response, whether those antibodies come from natural infection or the vaccine and boosters. Previously, Oklahoma Blood Institute’s ability to test for donors’ COVID exposure was limited to a detectable immune response from prior infection. The improved method will also detect if an individual has antibodies from receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine. The testing is free to all donors as a regular part of the donation process.
