by Elizabeth Pitts-Hibbard

The number of new COVID-19 cases in Oklahoma has reached new highs daily since last week, including a big leap in today’s reporting.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health’s update earlier did not reflect a change from yesterday; however, updates to the site said that there were technical issues.

The new report states that 450 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in the state today, as well as two deaths.

There was no change to the number of cases reported in Stephens County. According to the report, there have been 8 cases confirmed in Stephens County to date.

New cases in Oklahoma reached record levels last Friday and Saturday and again with 259 new cases yesterday.
