There are now five confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Creek County, as we were told to expect yesterday by city officials. Up to now, there had been zero reported cases in Creek County.

According to the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH), state cases continue to climb as well; there are 164 positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma. New counties with cases include not only Creek County but also Adair, Bryan, Carter, Delaware, Osage, Pottawatomie and Stephens Counties.

There have also been two additional deaths reported, both from Oklahoma County, one male in his 70s and one male in his 40s.

OSDH has been working aggressively to establish four satellite testing locations in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kay, and Pittsburg counties. To effectively develop a large-scale, statewide, satellite testing platform, OSDH is implementing a limited rollout in order to ​develop best practices for a more robust platform.

OSDH and its public health care partners will begin these new testing sites in phases. Phase one rolls out today, Wednesday, March 25 in Pittsburg County, with 100 test kits, and Kay County with limited testing supplies. Setting up this initial test phase allows the State’s medical professionals to gather  ​public health data, outside of the hospital setting, while determining the projected capacity needed for effective COVID-19 testing throughout Oklahoma.
