As of yesterday this morning, there were 67 cases 81 cases of coronavirus in Oklahoma, one in Muskogee County, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health. We will update those numbers when they are released for today.

The confusion of Muskogee County cases continued over the weekend, with one previous case initially attributed to Muskogee County but revised to another county after further review. The new case in Muskogee County is legitimately in Muskogee County.

So far, Oklahoma County and Cleveland County have been the hardest hit, with 26 and 13 cases, respectively.

The majority of cases have been in victims between 18 to 49 years old.

Hunger Free Oklahoma has set up two websites detailing places where children who are accustomed to eating at school can still receive meals while the schools are out. HFO has repurposed the Summer Meals map to provide detailed listings of food sites for kids during the shutdown. Visit Sites will be continually added.

The site is mobile-friendly. Turn on your location or type in “Muskogee” to find the meal sites nearby. This website is a complete food access database. It is live but still in progress. It will be continually updated with community listings as they’re provided/verified and with program changes if/as they’re announced.

Crowd-Sourcing: This website will be updated regularly and as quickly as possible with additional resources and access points. If you know of a food resource that isn’t listed, you can add it by filling out this form. If you have any questions, call or text 918-606-8721.
