Today's weekly Oklahoma COVID-19 Weekly Report is now available.

This week’s percentage of positives is the lowest it has been since July 3 at 8.9%.

Oklahoma’s current trend with new positive cases continues to reflect community transmission, which can be reduced by keeping 6 feet of physical distance from others, wearing face coverings when around individuals from outside the household, avoiding touching your face, and regular hand-washing. 

Approximately 70% more specimens have been collected and processed in July than last month.

Oklahoma currently ranks 32nd in the number of total reported COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and 34th in the cumulative incidence (per 100,000 persons) of reported COVID-19 cases in the U.S.

It is critical for Oklahomans to seek out testing, with or without symptoms. Diagnostic testing is freely available to all Oklahomans, and we continue to improve our ability to find and diagnose COVID-19 cases through our contact tracing efforts. If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, a public health worker may try to contact you; the need to adhere to instructions to quarantine and isolate remain critically important.

Reports from weeks past can be found here.

Color-Coded Risk Phases

The Oklahoma State Department of Health has developed the Oklahoma COVID-19 Alert System; a four-tiered risk measurement tool with corresponding color categories that identify the current COVID-19 risk level. This tool offers the public and local elected officials an easy way to recognize each county’s risk level.

OSDH Press Release

Oklahoma City, Okla.(July 31, 2020) - The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) and its Women, Infants, Children (WIC) Supplemental Nutrition Program, alongside other organizations around the world, support the promotion of World Breastfeeding Week, August 1 to 7, 2020. This year’s theme, Support Breastfeeding for a Healthier Planet, focuses on the impact of infant feeding and the health of our planet and its people.

The packaging and production of infant formula consumes significant resources, which contributes to growing landfills. Breastmilk is a natural, sustainable food that is environmentally safe; produced and delivered without packaging, pollution or waste. Besides protecting the health of mothers and babies, breastfeeding has an inherent way of protecting the Earth.

“Our WIC Program provides various levels of breastfeeding support from the peer counselor to the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant,” said Amanda Morgan, WIC Breastfeeding Education Coordinator. “We can all play a role in supporting breastfeeding families as part of a collective effort to improve the health of Oklahomans.”

According to Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System’s aggregated data from 2016 to 2018, 86% of Oklahoma mothers began breastfeeding their babies after birth. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusively breastfeeding for at least six months of age, continuing to one year of age or beyond.

Data provided in The Oklahoma Toddler Survey from 2018 indicate that 47% of mothers were breastfeeding at six months and 29% percent of mothers were breastfeeding at 12 months or more. The OSDH supports breastfeeding mothers in hopes of achieving the national Healthy People 2020 breastfeeding objective to increase the proportion of infants who are breastfed at six months to nearly 61% and at one year to 34%.

For more information about breastfeeding, how to find a lactation consultant in your area, or how to become a Recognized Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite, visit the OSDH breastfeeding website http://bis.health.ok.gov, call the Oklahoma Breastfeeding Hotline toll free at 1-877-271-MILK (6455) or text OK2BF to 61222.

TSET Release

Oklahoma’s Hospitals Helping Patients Quit program provides more than 50 hospitals with physician resources from the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline to help with patient referrals. This TSET-funded program was featured in the "CDC’s Best Practices User Guides for Cessation in Tobacco Prevention and Control."

The guide offers program staff and partners information on how to promote health systems change, improve insurance coverage for cessation treatment and support state quitlines. "Encouraging and helping tobacco users to quit is the quickest approach to reducing tobacco-related disease, death, and healthcare costs," according to "Best Practices 2014."
