It is critical for Oklahomans to seek out testing, with or without symptoms. Diagnostic testing is freely available to all Oklahomans. If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, a public health worker may try to contact you; the need to adhere to instructions to quarantine and isolate remain critically important.

Sperry added 5 new cases and has 659 with 647 recovered and 5 deaths. Owasso has 171 active cases, Collinsville has 68. The city of Tulsa has 1,261 active cases.

Across the state of Oklahoma 461,893 cases have been reported. There have been 7,414 deaths. The rise in cases week over week is 2,688 cases, higher than last week. The CDC provisional death count is 8,654.
