OSDH Press Release

Due to technical data entry issues, case counts for Sunday, July 19 and Monday, July 20 are low and do not reflect real-time data. OSDH’s Acute Disease Service is working diligently to resolve these technical issues and will continue to provide reporting of COVID-19 information that Oklahomans have come to expect from OSDH. In the meantime, Oklahomans who receive a positive test result through a State lab will continue to be promptly notified and connected to contract tracing efforts.

In its efforts to continuously develop robust contact tracing across the State, the OSDH will begin using text messaging in addition to phone calls to reach out to contacts. We will release more information on this new development including what contacts can expect to see in a text notification.

As of this advisory, there are 25,433 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma. 

There is one additional death. None were identified in the past 24 hours.

  • One in Tulsa County, one female in the 65 or older age group.  

There are 452 total deaths in the state.
