OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma went into its first weekend of a partially reopened economy during the coronavirus pandemic as residents were allowed to return to restaurants, malls, and other stores.

State health officials reported eight new deaths and 103 new infections on Saturday, even as tempers flared in some parts of the state over restrictions still in place.

Stillwater city officials on Friday amended a local emergency declaration after businesses reported being threatened by customers who didn’t want to be forced to wear masks to enter. The changes now make masks optional for customers. Employees are still required to wear them.
