The Oklahoma State Department of Health reported Friday there are now 988 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state, with deaths now at 38.

Numbers for Pottawatomie County cases went from 9 to 11. Lincoln County now has seven cases and Seminole County remains steady with one case.

From the OSDH on Friday:

As of this advisory, there are 988 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.

There are an additional four deaths:

Three in Tulsa County, three females older than 65.

One in Cleveland County, a female older than 65.

There are 38 total deaths in the state.

Pursuant to Governor Stitt issuing a catastrophic health emergency yesterday, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) continues to update reporting which will create more transparency and ultimately notify first responders if the address they are responding to corresponds to an address of a patient who has tested positive for COVID-19.

In order to comply with state and federal privacy requirements, the patient's name will stay protected.

OSDH is working with the Office of Emergency Management to channel the information to the 911 dispatch system through processes already in place.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) continues to open additional drive-thru COVID-19 testing locations across the state. Find the drive-thru locations by clicking here.
