Governor Issues New COVID-19 Guidelines

With COVID-19 cases increasing rapidly in the state, Gov. Kevin Stitt announced new guidelines as he spoke Monday at a press conference. He joined with Commissioner of Health Dr. Lance Frye to announce increased safety measure for restaurants, bars and state employees to help stop the spread of the virus.

“Throughout the entire battle against COVID-19, my first priority has been to protect the health and lives of Oklahomans,” said Gov. Stitt. “Two other things are also very important to me. We’re going to keep businesses open safely and we’re going to work to get all kids back in school safely by the end of Christmas Break. However, it’s going to take everyone working together to meet these goals.”

The new action items under Seventh Amended EO 2020-20 include:

•Starting Thursday, Nov. 19, all restaurants will be required to space tables at least six feet apart, unless tables, booths and bar areas are separated by sanitized dividers.
