PONCA CITY —
The Ponca City Fly-In Breakfast, held the first Saturday of each month at the Ponca City Airport, has been canceled for September due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in Kay County according to Bert Blanton.
Blanton said that after researching statistics for our area it showed that Kay County was averaging six cases per day before the August breakfast was held and is now averaging 22 new cases a day. The August breakfast was the first since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Blanton said most of those attending the August breakfast were from Kay County and that 43 kids attended as well as many unvaccinated adults.
With cases rising and the new variant being much more contagious, Blanton said it’s just too risky for those attending especially children, teens, and older unvaccinated adults.
The monthly fly-in breakfast is sponsored by the Ponca City Aviation Boosters as a fundraiser and is held on the first Saturday of each month.
