The Oklahoma State Department of Health is pleased to share that the Attorney General has announced the agency can continue its release of COVID-19 data beyond county levels. State attorneys will meet today to discuss the legal parameters for which data sets the agency can resume reporting, and we will provide an update as soon as information becomes available.

“It is incumbent upon us as state leaders to protect sensitive health information,” OSDH Interim Commissioner Lance Frye said. “I encourage Oklahomans to use the information to make informed decisions in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.”

As of this advisory, there are 6,907 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.

There are three additional deaths. One of them occurred since June 3 and the others died between May 22 and June 2:

– two in Tulsa County, one female in the 36-49 age group and one female in the 65 and older age group;

– one in Oklahoma County, a male in the 65 and older age group.

There are 344 total deaths in the state.

COVID-19 testing sites are open in multiple cities in Oklahoma as a result of a cross-county, city and state health system partnership.
