Coronavirus in Oklahoma: What is the ‘Serious Seven?’

TULSA, Okla. — Mayor G.T. Bynum and the Tulsa Health Department discussed what’s called the “Serious Seven” on Wednesday when describing the places or events people are most likely to be exposed to COVID-19.

The city mentioned the idea in a news conference about the rising number of coronavirus cases in the area:

The Serious Seven includes:

  • Weddings
  • Gyms
  • Funerals
  • House gatherings
  • Bars
  • Faith-based activities
  • Other small events

The Oklahoma City Health Department introduced the graphic showing these places and events, urging people to continue to use caution while the state continues to allow such gatherings.

Bynum says the same graphic applies to Tulsa too.

The City of Tulsa is continuing to follow the Open Up & Recover Safely Plan that allowed the state to begin reopening at the end of April.
