Vian Mayor Dennis Fletcher announced as of Monday, July 27, Vian Town Hall will be closing the lobby until further notice due to the rise in number of COVID-19 cases in Vian and the surrounding area.
“The team at the Redbird Smith Health Center in Sallisaw, like all of our Cherokee Nation Health Services staff throughout the 14-county reservation, have been on the front lines fighting to save lives and help prevent the spread of CO- VID-19 through our communities. They have dedicated so much of their time and efforts to this mission, and I could never give thanks enough for their service. Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. and I really appreciate everything they have done in the fight against COVID-19. Our Health Services department is a leader in Indian Country and the Cherokee Nation is thankful to have these men and women on our team.”— Cherokee Nation Deputy Chief Bryan Warner
