One COVID-19 Death in County

An elderly Sequoyah County woman who died on Feb. 20 is the first confirmed COVID-19 death in the county, according to numbers released Saturday morning from the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH). The woman and another person who was reported as the first case last week are the only two known cases in Sequoyah County, according to OSDH.

A rare occurrence

An almost empty Cherokee Ave. gives an indication that Sallisaw residents are taking seriously the concept of staying home. Normally, parking is at a premium at some of the businesses along this portion of the street, but with businesses closing their lobbies and changing hours of operation, or working remotely, traffic has slowed.
