Oklahoma County Suspends Evictions Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Oklahoma County Sheriff P.D. Taylor has suspended the enforcement of residential evictions due to the coronavirus pandemic. The action was taken Tuesday after the district court suspended non-emergency court hearings. The Sheriff's Office says they will be monitoring the situation daily and will resume evictions when appropriate.

On Monday, Tulsa County announced a two-week moratorium on evictions, also due to the coronavirus pandemic.
