As cases continue to spike in Oklahoma, experts have recommended that Oklahomans continue to wear face masks, practice social distancing and good hygiene and be cautious in situations where spread is possible. The case spike is due to increased positive test rates and community spread, not increased testing, health officials say.

The state has not updated hospitalization numbers since Thursday evening, when the state's executive order report showed 391 current confirmed and suspected COVID-19 hospitalizations in Oklahoma. 

The Health Department is operating testing locations throughout the state at places and times listed on the OSDH’s website.
