Officials: Tulsa virus spike linked to recent indoor events

The Associated Press - June 13, 2020 12:20 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Health officials in Oklahoma say a spike in coronavirus cases in the Tulsa area is linked to indoor events and those officials are warning people attending such gatherings to take health precautions.

The Tulsa Health Department’s warning on Friday comes eight days before the President is scheduled to hold a campaign rally at the BOK Center in Tulsa. The BOK Center has a listed seating capacity of over 19,000.

Department spokesperson Leanne Stephens says an undetermined number of the latest coronavirus cases were linked to two recent indoor gatherings, but declined to name them. She says the department has not had contact with the President’s campaign and the warning is unrelated to the planned rally.
