Oklahoma State Department of Health announces transition to Endemic phase of Pandemic

Oklahoma State Department of Health has announced that they are beginning the transition to what they say is now the endemic phase of the pandemic. Endemic is when a disease is still present but is limited to a particular reason of spread and is more predictable.

Earlier this week the Oklahoma Department of Health ceased monitoring the daily case count and is transitioning to a weekly case update. The new weekly report will contain the 7 day average of new cases and a 3 day average of hospitalizations.

The OSDH believes that a weekly report will more accurately reflect the current impact of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.
