City Taking COVID Illnesses ‘Case by Case’

“The holidays have not been kind” to workers with the City of Sallisaw, Keith Skelton, city manager, said at a special meeting Wednesday.

Speaking at a special meeting of the Sallisaw Board of City Commissioners, Skelton said the city is dealing “case by case” with staffers going into quarantine because of the coronavirus.

Skelton said he doesn’t expect the situation to get much better, with New Year’s Day right around the corner and another wave of COVID-19 expected to follow.

The special meeting was called so the commissioners could discuss the city’s audit for Fiscal Year 2019-20 from FSW & B, CPAs. After discussing the audit, the commissioners unanimously approved it.

Skelton said more information on the audit would be released at the next City Commissioners’ meeting on Jan. 4.
