A Tulsa County man tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), state officials said Friday.
This is the first confirmed case in Oklahoma.
The patient is in quarantine and described as a man in his 50s who recently traveled to Italy.
Officials said there is no evidence of community spread and the risk to the public in Oklahoma remains low.
The Tulsa Health Department established a phone bank to answer calls from the community. Operators will be available until 7 p.m. Friday at 918-582-9355. They have not said when or if the lines will reopen after that.
The Oklahoma Department of Health also setup a phone bank. It can be reached Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 877-215-8336.
