As COVID-19 transmission continues to increase throughout the state, the State Department of Health is reminding Oklahomans tools are available to help protect themselves and their loved ones.

With at-home, non-reportable tests readily available, it is difficult to know the full scope of current cases, however it is clear transmission has been increasing, the agency states.

Hospitalizations are also increasing, but at a considerably slower pace than have been seen in previous surges.

“One of the best things you can do if you are symptomatic is to test and stay home,” says Keith Reed, Oklahoma commissioner of health. “Taking these precautions will help reduce community transmission. Additionally, there are tools available you can choose to use to protect yourself including good handwashing, testing, vaccination and wearing a mask in high-risk areas. Effective treatments are also available, including antiviral medications and antibody treatment.”

The state has ample supply of vaccine and antiviral medication. At-home COVID-19 tests are available for purchase at various retail outlets or free through the USPS. On-site testing is also available throughout the state.
