SOS Okla started this petition to Broken Arrow City Council

The Broken Arrow City Council must take additional steps to protect our community from Covid-19. Broken Arrow is in the second-highest concentrated infectious location in the State of Oklahoma. Our state is in the top three most infectious states in the nation. This shameful statistic results in an increasing number of our friends, neighbors, relatives, and employees who are being stricken with this disease. The B.1.17 mutated strain of the virus has been discovered in the United States. It has resulted in an extreme lock down in Great Britain.

The White House SARS-CoV-2 Task Force, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Institutes for Health, in addition to local and state health departments and physicians, all consistently produce figures from quantitative scientific research, showing measurable effects of mask-wearing in cities. The results of this research prove that wearing masks does indeed slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The current lack of a policy is a failure to protect citizens, particularly those who must work in the public and risk exposure to the airborne virus from an unmasked pubic repeatedly throughout the day. Every statistic on transmission in Broken Arrow has risen to extraordinary levels. Nearly any added emphasis on mask wearing would be an improvement.

  • We support a mask ordinance to help schools and businesses remain open both, deserve our support. 
  • We support a city-wide mask ordinance because Broken Arrow is not an “island” within the Greater Tulsa area, and the infectious climate here contributes to area hospitals and ICU units being overwhelmed and medical personnel being taxed to a breaking point. If the contagion gets worse what we do now can prevent the eventual collapse of our health system.
  • We support a city-wide mask ordinance because the first goal of any level of effective government is the protection of the community it is called to govern.
  • We support a mask ordinance because, the unequivocal support of city leaders to this basic public health strategy is important to encourage mask wearing.
  • We support a city-wide mask mandate because our masks protect you, and your masks will protect us. The higher the percentage of people wearing masks, the lower the rate of spreading the infection.
    We support a mask ordinance because endangering the health and lives of others by refusing to wear a mask is not the Oklahoma Standard of caring for and helping one another.
