Gov. Kevin Stitt on Tuesday strongly urged Oklahomans to wear a mask when they can’t social distance to slow coronavirus spread, but said he would not mandate it for the state.
“Research shows that wearing a mask when you can’t social distance significantly lowers the transmission rate of COVID-19,” Stitt said during a Capitol news conference. “It may take some getting used to, but it is a small price to pay to be able to keep our businesses open, our economy running and to be able to watch OU and OSU stick it to the shorthorns (University of Texas) on the football field in the fall.”
The CDC has added 3 new symptoms for COVID-19: congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea. Call the your health care provider if you are experiencing symptoms or call THD at 918-582-9355 for a testing appointment if you have been potentially exposed. pic.twitter.com/v7lbCBPXgt— Tulsa Health Dept (@TulsaHealthDept) June 30, 2020
OSDH does not combine antibody test results with its regular COVID-19 viral test results.— OK Dept of Health (@HealthyOklahoma) June 30, 2020
The two tests look for different things. A viral test tells you if you have a current infection. An antibody test might tell you if you had a past infection. Results are tracked separately. pic.twitter.com/5IxBCxSOvw
