Luther—For your Friday update, we present a cut and paste version of info from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, with a little data extrapolation of active coronavirus cases in our area. This “just the facts, Ma’am” information might present a little break from mask mayhem and other assorted pandemic conspiracies, “expert” opinions and data that may or may not be accurate, (but still we share it).

In all of it, kindness matters. And as a wise friend reminded us, shaming is always the wrong strategy.

Hang in there! And Happy Friday.
