Mike Seals - October 2, 2020 11:05 am

– SITUATION UPDATE: COVID-19 –

As of this advisory, there are 89,559 cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.

Kay County has reported a cumulative total of 670 confirmed cases, with 13 deaths.

Osage County is reporting a total of 1,118 confirmed cases, also with 13 deaths.

There are 1,044 total deaths in the state.

  • This week, six counties moved from the “orange” risk phase to “yellow” and nine new counties moved to “orange”. OSDH continues to monitor closely the statewide hospitalization trends for COVID-19.
  • Due to improvements in testing availability and reporting of lab results, OSDH is now calculating the alert system by date the result was reported (rather than date of symptom onset, as previously done). This improves transparency, as the calculations can be performed with publicly available data.
  • The COVID-19 Alert map will be updated every Friday in the Situation Update at 11:00 a.m. This week’s map can be seen in this update below the test results chart.
  • As OSDH continues to meet with stakeholders across the state, the COVID-19 Alert Map is subject to further revisions as science and public health guidance advances with the ongoing pandemic.
  • There are 9 additional deaths identified to report. One death was identified in the past 24 hours.
    • Two in Cleveland County, one male in the 18 – 35 age group and one male in the 65 or older age group.
