OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The 2020 Oklahoma State Fair has been canceled due to a surge in confirmed coronavirus cases in the state. The Fair announced in a news release on Friday that the decision to cancel came after discussions with other State Fair officials, state and local officials, national touring acts, and public health agencies.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health reported yesterday that 395 more people have tested positive for COVID-19 and two more have died. The actual number of people infected is likely higher because many have not been tested, and studies indicate that people can carry the virus and not feel sick.
