OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma’s governor is ordering non-essential businesses to shut down in 19 counties where the coronavirus has been detected.

The governor also announced Tuesday he is ordering elderly and vulnerable Oklahomans to stay indoors until April 30, except for essential travel like getting groceries or prescriptions.

The expanded order comes as a third death in Oklahoma is being attributed to the new coronavirus. The Health Department says a Cleveland County woman in her 60s died from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

Today’s  number of people who have tested positive for the virus has risen to 109.
