Oklahoma’s number of COVID-19 positive tests almost doubled overnight from 17 to 29, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Even though one of the new cases was a child under four years old, the department is recommending that daycares and child care centers remain open while increasing sanitization practices and providing hygiene protocols to children and employees. They also recommend social distancing and flexibility while maintaining child safety.

There are 110 tests still waiting for results.
