Situation Update: COVID-19


March 26, 2020

As of this advisory (Thursday, March 25), there are 164 positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma. New counties with cases include Adair, Bryan, Carter, Creek, Delaware, Osage, Pottawatomie and Stephens.

There are an additional two deaths, both from Oklahoma County: one male in his 70s and one male in his 40s.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) has been working aggressively to establish four satellite testing locations in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kay and Pittsburg counties.

To effectively develop a large-scale, statewide, satellite testing platform, OSDH is implementing a limited rollout in order to develop best practices for a more robust platform.

OSDH and its public health care partners will begin these new testing sites in phases. Phase One rolled out Thursday, March 25, in Pittsburg County with 100 test kits, and Kay County with limited testing supplies.

Setting up this initial test phase allows the state's medical professionals to gather public health data outside of the hospital setting, while determining the projected capacity needed for effective COVID-19 testing throughout Oklahoma.
