(TULSA, Okla.) The Oklahoma White House report filed on October 4 had a long list of recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19 statewide- and it didn’t mince words with how things are going right now. At the top of the list, the report states “Community transmission has remained high across the state for the past month, with many preventable deaths.” It goes on to recommend more messaging about the effectiveness of masks, more limits to indoor dining, and an increase in contact tracing efforts, among other recommendations. The state report lists Oklahoma in the red zone for both cases and test positivity, as well as top ten for both in the nation.
