OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has signed an executive order to prohibit state agencies from adopting mask or coronavirus vaccination requirements. Stitt signed the order on Friday and said in a statement that Oklahomans should have access to government services whether or not they choose to be vaccinated or wear a mask.
Stitt refused to issue a statewide mask mandate, but in November required masks inside state buildings, an order that was lifted in March.
Stitt announced the new order after signing into law a bill prohibiting schools and colleges from adopting mask or vaccination requirements. The order does not apply in medical settings with patients.
