Oklahoma enters Phase 3 of reopen plan

Governor Stitt sent this out today, noting that Oklahoma is now in Phase 3 of his administration's reopening plan:
Today I’m happy to tell you Oklahoma has moved to Phase 3 of the Open Up and Recover Safely plan. We will continue to listen to health officials and experts and make responsible decisions based on the data in our state. Oklahoma has just 708 active cases out of our nearly 4 million residents and 5,236 people have already recovered.

Our positive test percentage continues to decline 36 days into the OURS plan. As of May 28, 188,665 tests have been performed with just 3.77% coming back positive. Since Phase 2 was initiated on May 15, 69,914 tests have been performed and just 2.1% have been positive.

Active cases in Oklahoma and Tulsa Counties, the two largest in our state, make up less than 0.03% of the population in their respective counties.

While the data supports our movement into Phase 3, it's critical Oklahomans remember #COVID19 is still in the United States. We must continue to be diligent by washing our hands, maintaining physical distance and protecting our most vulnerable populations.

Free COVID-19 testing remains available to all Oklahomans at more than 80 locations across the state. Detailed information is available at

Oklahoma is setting an example to the nation of a community that works together, not against each other.   Let's continue to lead the way.
