Statement on COVID-19 Community Spread

The Oklahoma State Department of Health would like to provide acknowledgement of community spread in our state. Community spread means that individuals who have no travel history or contact with someone with the disease have become infected with the virus.

We have known community spread would be coming, if not here already, and we are beginning to identify areas so we can work together on mitigation efforts.

As always, please focus on prevention and remain vigilant in following the easy and basic health tips such as washing your hands, covering your cough or sneeze, and avoiding people who are sick.
