County Adds COVID-19 Cases

Cases of COVID-19 are still on the rise in Sequoyah County, Steve Rutherford, the county’s Emergency Management director, said Monday.

Rutherford spoke at the weekly meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, where he said another nine cases were added over the weekend, bringing Sequoyah County’s total number of coronavirus cases to 340.

In other business, the county commissioners approved a resolution accepting a donation from the Cherokee Nation to the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Department. They also gave the green light for the Sheriff’s Office to enter into a lease-purchase agreement with Vance Fleet for a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab.

The commissioners also approved an interlocal agreement between Sequoyah County and the Town of Gore for Fiscal Year 2020-21 for District 2 and they accepted a Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) application for Fiscal 2021 for District 3.

The commissioners also designated Crystal Stuart and Jimmy Williams as receiving agents for Sequoyah County District 1 and designated Lavonn Stites and Sandy Moss as receiving agents with the Sequoyah County clerk’s office.
