COVID-19 has made a resurgence in Oklahoma.
While we flattened the curve early on, Oklahoma is now experiencing a significant spike in cases. This means we all need to be vigilant, both for ourselves and our neighbors. We must follow the advice of our public health officials by wearing masks, maintaining physical distance and washing our hands regularly.
To help slow the outbreak of cases, the Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD) is urging extra precaution when attending certain events or venues, what OCCHD has named the Serious Seven:
- Faith-Based Activities
- House Gatherings
- Other Small Events
When you are at these events or around others, remember to wear a mask, stay six feet away from others, sanitize or wash your hands, and avoid touching your face.
In Oklahoma City, Mayor David Holt has put several new regulations into place beginning Friday, July 3. All employees in restaurants and bars will be required to wear masks, bar capacities will lower by 50%, and venues with theatre-style seating (like weddings, churches, and funerals) must stagger seating.
If you think you might be sick or you are concerned you have been exposed, this page from the Oklahoma State Department of Health lets you know what steps to take next. A list of testing sites for Oklahoma is available here.
