There was an additional death in Oklahoma, a male in his 70s in Creek County. There are eight total deaths in the state.

With the number of cases rising each day, the OSDH urges the public to follow the Governor’s “Safer at Home” executive order advising vulnerable populations and those over the age of 65 to stay home until April 16 and for non-essential businesses in counties with COVID-19 cases to temporarily suspend services until April 16. The CDC also recommends the public to stay home, practice social distancing, hand washing, and specifically for those who are sick to isolate for up to 14 days.
