THINGS TO DO

Muskogee County is at substantial risk for the transmission of COVID-19, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control. All the surrounding counties are at the highest level of risk, the data show.

After trending downward since April, over the last two weeks, Muskogee area’s infection rate has spiked sharply upward. The delta variant of the virus, which is more transmissible than previous strains, has been infecting people who are fully vaccinated, though the CDC states that it infects the vaccinated at a far lower rate than the unvaccinated. The World Health Organization is recommending that everyone, even the fully vaccinated, continue to wear masks because of the very transmissible variant.
