First COVID-19 case in Muskogee County (UPDATE: not currently living here)


From Muskogee County Commissioner Ken Doke:
UPDATED INFORMATION ON MUSKOGEE COUNTY COVID19 CASE

After being notified by the Health Department that the first positive case in Muskogee County was confirmed, further investigation revealed that this person is not currently living in Muskogee County. Current policy for case reporting is to report confirmed cases to the county where the person resides. If this case does end up being reported as a case in Muskogee County, please know that it would only be a technicality because this person is not currently living in Muskogee County at this time. The case is still under investigation. If there is any other relevant information that becomes available, we will let you know. Thanks.
The Muskogee City Council declared a state of emergency yesterday during a specially-called meeting, following similar moves by other Oklahoma cities this week.

I will post updates as more details emerge.
