The following is from a news release from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, Thursday, 11:24 am, March 26, 2020

SITUATION UPDATE: COVID-19

  • As of this advisory, there are 248 positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma. New counties with cases include Comanche, Craig, Lincoln, Okmulgee, Ottawa and Sequoyah counties.
  • There are an additional two deaths in Cleveland County, a female in her 90s and a male in his 60s. There are seven total deaths in the state.
  • As the state continues to work aggressively with public and private partners to increase testing supplies in Oklahoma, it is likely that the increase in confirmed cases is related to an increase in testing in the state.
  • The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) operated two satellite testing sites in Kay County and Pittsburg County. There were 32 specimens collected at the Kay County site and 16 in Pittsburg County. The tests are being processed by the Oklahoma Public Health Laboratory.
  • With the number of cases rising each day, the OSDH urges the public to follow the Governor’s “Safer at Home” executive order advising vulnerable populations and those over the age of 65 to stay home until April 30 and for non-essential businesses in counties with COVID-19 cases to temporarily suspend services until April 30. The CDC also recommends the public to stay home, practice social distancing, hand washing, and specifically for those who are sick to isolate for up to 14 days.

    Help Wanted TSD Supply Co. Now Hiring

    To effectively develop a large-scale, statewide, satellite testing platform, OSDH is implementing a limited rollout in order to ​develop best practices for a more robust platform.

    OSDH and its public health care partners will begin these new testing sites in phases. Phase one rolls out today, Wednesday, March 25 in Pittsburg County, with 100 test kits, and Kay County with limited testing supplies.

    Setting up this initial test phase allows the State’s medical professionals to gather  ​public health data, outside of the hospital setting, while determining the projected capacity needed for effective COVID-19 testing throughout Oklahoma.

SITUATION UPDATE: COVID-19

  • As of this advisory, there are 106 positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.
  • Governor Kevin Stitt will hold a press conference later today providing an update regarding the state’s actions to combat COVID-19.
  • There has been one additional death reported in Cleveland County, a woman in her 60s, bringing the total of COVID-19 deaths in Oklahoma to three.
  • Reporting note: The age grouping chart has changed to allow more comprehensive reporting of the 18-49 age range. This advisory is the first to report the following age ranges; 00-04, 18-35, 36-49.
  • The number of COVID-19 test results submitted by private labs has grown in the past 24-hours. Earlier this month, the Commissioner designated COVID-19 as a disease that is immediately reportable to OSDH upon suspicion, diagnosis, or test. Any laboratories that fail or refuse to report findings to OSDH may subject to civil and criminal penalties.
  • Over the past week, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) has worked to move as much of its workforce as possible to teleworking. As of Friday, 51 percent were teleworking, and by the end of today, 75 percent of the agency’s central office workforce will be teleworking. A large number of the OSDH workforce, including those at county health departments, are at the epicenter of responding to COVID-19. The Commissioner of Health is committed to a structure that is safe for employees while also delivering robust, coordinated services to address the pandemic in Oklahoma.
  • The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) continues to support guidelines from the CDC related to social distancing and personal hygiene. OSDH encourages Oklahomans to stay home, reduce person-to-person contact, wash hands frequently, and avoid touching your face. If you develop symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath or cough, please contact your medical professional or call the COVID-19 call center at 877-215-8336 or 211 for assistance.

The following is from a news release from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, at Thursday, 11:06 am, March 19, 2020

SITUATION UPDATE: COVID-19

  • As of this advisory, there are 44 positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma. There has been one death attributed to COVID-19, a male in his 50s in Tulsa county.
  • The OSDH has partnered with 211Oklahoma to provide quick access to the COVID-19 hotline by dialing 2-1-1 from any phone.
  • There continues to be a shortage of complete testing kits, delaying the availability of test results. Due to this critically low supply, OSDH is working with health care providers to prioritize test completion for vulnerable populations which are as follows:
    • Clusters of individuals who are experiencing symptoms, such as nursing homes.
    • Individuals age 60 or older
    • Children or adults who have compromised immune systems
  • If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 such as shortness of breath, coughing or fever, please contact a health care provider for guidance or call 2-1-1 to speak with a state medical professional. During this time, remain isolated, drink fluids and rest. Only go to the emergency room if you are part of a vulnerable population or if symptoms worsen. If you have been tested by a medical provider, and are not part of a vulnerable population, there will be a delay in test results.

  • Even if you are not experiencing symptoms, it is strongly recommended that everyone observe social distancing and sanitation guidelines to avoid spread to vulnerable populations.
