New White House report calls for ‘immediate action,' mask mandate in Oklahoma

“The unyielding COVID spread across Oklahoma continues with new hospital admissions, inpatients, and patients in the ICU at record levels, indicating deeper spread across the state. The most recent trends, showing steep inclines across all indicators, need immediate action including mask requirements to decrease severity in morbidity and mortality among Oklahomans. • Effective practices to decrease transmission in public spaces include limiting restaurant indoor capacity to less than 50% and restricting hours until cases and test positivity decrease to the yellow zone.”

OSDH adjusts record-breaking COVID-19 cases number, stresses community spread

Update 12:15 p.m. Nov. 8: OSDH has adjusted the number of COVID-19 cases. The following information was included in a news release on Sunday:

State Health Commissioner Dr. Lance Frye issued the following statement about the COVID-19 numbers being updated on the state dashboard today:

"Today’s individual case number, 4,507, is a corrected version of yesterday’s number with all duplicate cases removed. Today we will not be releasing a new daily case number, allowing our data reporting system to catch up and ensure duplications are removed from the daily number prior to release moving forward. Starting tomorrow, the daily number released will not include any duplicates. We are committed to giving the public and media accurate and transparent data, and this will ensure the daily number reflects the actual case count. We will continue to point to the 7-day average, percent positivity and hospitalizations in addition to the daily number to give a more complete picture of trends.

We have no reason to believe our revised number is an anomaly, but instead shows community spread is occurring. We continue to urge all Oklahomans to take this highly-contagious virus seriously and act immediately to avoid large gatherings, wear a mask, wash your hands and watch your distance to others. Together we can bring these numbers down and protect our friends, family and neighbors."


Single-day record shattered

Update 1 p.m. Nov. 7: The single-day record was shattered Saturday as the state reported 4,741 cases.

  • There are 136,492 cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.
  • There are 9 additional deaths identified to report. None were identified in the past 24 hours.
  • One in Cleveland County, one male in the 65 or older age group.

  • One in Lincoln County, one male in the 50 - 64 age group.

  • One in Tulsa County, one female in the 50 - 64 age group.
  • One in Washita County, one male in the 65 or older age group.

There are 1,438 total deaths in the state

State Commissioner of Health Dr. Lance Frye issued the following statement regarding today’s COVID-19 case numbers:

"Today’s significant rise in COVID-19 case numbers is alarming and we call on all Oklahomans to take immediate action to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We can all work together to keep our friends, family and neighbors safe by limiting gatherings, wearing a mask, washing our hands and social distancing. We have the power to slow the spread, but we all must do our part.

In addition to significant community spread, included in today’s numbers is a backlog resulting from the continued transition from a manual to electronic reporting system at several labs across the state. Today’s number likely also contains some duplicated cases, which will be corrected in tomorrow’s numbers. We have reason to believe that our normal case count would have continued on an upward trajectory without the backlog and duplication.

We know the daily case count alone doesn’t tell the full story. We will continue to look at the 7-day average of cases, percent positivity, hospitalizations and the nature of transmission so we can see the complete picture. The number today adds to a continued upward trend that we are monitoring closely. Additional actions will be taken should this trend continue.

I ask that all Oklahomans stay vigilant in protecting themselves and their loved ones from this highly-contagious virus and we all need to do our part to slow the spread now."

On Saturday, Gov. Kevin Stitt also said we need to do better to help decrease transmission.

"It is clear that this virus continues to spread through rural and urban communities across Oklahoma and the United States.

Throughout the history of our state, Oklahomans have taken pride in caring for our neighbors during times of trouble. Now, more than ever, I am asking each Oklahoman to do the right thing and protect their families, neighbors and those who are most vulnerable.

Keep washing your hands frequently, watch your distance from others, and wear a mask when social distancing isn’t possible or visiting indoor public places. You have heard me say these things before, but we need everyone to take these actions seriously. They work.

Watching your distance also means being careful about how long you’re in crowded places and how you gather with your friends and family. You can spread this virus to someone you love even if you aren’t showing symptoms, so please take extra care around family members who are older or have compromised immune systems.

Taking these steps together as a state will allow us to continue to keep our lives operating as close to normal as possible. Oklahomans pulled together back in April so we could safely reopen our economy, and I am asking for that same unified effort once again to slow the spread of this virus and keep Oklahomans safe." – Governor Kevin Stitt

The president of Oklahoma State Medical Association also expressed concern:
