Some may be doing some light pruning after the ice storm to remove hanging limbs or dangerous limbs. Just a friendly reminder, topping trees or leaving stubs can lead to stem decay and tree mortality. Additionally, stub cuts can promote weakly attached sprouts that fail as they mature creating larger wounds. Always cut back to the next branch union, never cut in the middle of a branch. And as always, safety first! For more details please visit https://extension.okstate.edu/fact-sheets/managing-storm-damaged-trees.html 🌳

Good reminders for today and tomorrow. Be safe out there!

✅With the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 rising across the state, the County Health Department asks the public to follow Governor Kevin Stitt "Safer at Home" executive order to stop the spread of COVID-19. This order advises:

vulnerable populations and those over the age of 65 to stay home until April 30.
non-essential businesses in counties with COVID-19 cases to temporarily suspend services until April 16.
CDC also recommends the public to:
1️⃣ stay at home,
2️⃣ practice social distancing,
3️⃣ practice handwashing and personal health hygiene,
4️⃣ individuals who are sick should self-isolate from the public and other household members for 14 days

Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize!

Oklahomans are doing a great job implementing social distancing recommendations and observing guidance from state and local authorities, and while that means we are staying home and limiting our exposure to others, we still have essential needs that must be met. To meet those needs, Oklahomans still need to go to the grocery store to pick up bread and milk and eggs. We still have to put gas in the car. For others, delivery services have been critical – bringing food, toilet paper, and other items straight to our doors.
But wait. All those items that are coming into our homes, have been touched by multiple hands, traveled by plane, truck and car to reach you. But what can you do about that? You have to have these items, so how will you maintain your individual and household needs and also protect yourself from potential spread of COVID-19. Should we be worried?
Good news folks – the risk of COVID-19 spreading through your delivered groceries and bars of soap are pretty low. In fact, the CDC doesn’t recommend anything special for how you handle packages received in the mail, or that you pick up at the grocery store. The CDC does recommend you continue to observe social distance practices and remain vigilant in your personal hygiene. There are a few extra precautionary measures you can take to reduce risk even more when you are bringing goods into your home.
If you are having food delivered, avoid direct contact with the food courier by leaving payment (if needed) outside the door and instructions on where to leave your food package.
When returning from a trip to the grocery store, gas station or food pick up, be sure to immediately wash your hands and any re-useable bags you may shop with.
Don’t leave empty take out boxes on your counters or other hard surfaces, make sure they land in your sink or your trash bin.
Continue to regularly disinfect high touch areas in your home – doorknobs, faucet handles and light switches are examples.
As long as we all keep doing our part, we can continue to slow the spread and flatten the curve here in Oklahoma. Let’s do this!

Have You Heard?

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, anecdotal stories and experiences begin to emerge. The information overload is unlikely to stop any time soon, so we want to take a moment to remind you about the importance of making sure the information you’re hearing (and sharing) is accurate.
Here are a few tips for you to ensure you’re hearing or reading the real deal:
Consider the source when receiving text messages or app messages that oversell the authority of the message sender. A friend of a friend who knows someone is probably not a reliable source, so proceed with caution until you can validate it’s credible.
Fact check. Did you read a post that said your local legislator made a decision to “lockdown” your community? Check his or her official page for confirmation before proceeding.
Determine where you want to gather your primary information and stick to that source as your true north. Outside of the OSDH, the CDC and the WHO are the overarching public health experts on COVID-19.
Misinformation can cause additional fear, anxiety and concern in today’s news cycle. A healthy dose of skepticism will help ensure the information you are receiving, and sharing, is helpful and not harmful.

SITUATION UPDATE: COVID-19

As of this advisory, there are 322 positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma. New counties with cases include Caddo, Cherokee, Choctaw, Latimer and Pittsburg counties. These counties will now be required to come into compliance with Governor Kevin Stitt's "Safer at Home" executive order that calls for non-essential businesses in counties with COVID-19 cases to temporarily suspend services until April 16.
There was an additional death in Oklahoma, a male in his 70s in Creek County. There are eight total deaths in the state.
Governor Kevin Stitt, Secretary of Science and Innovation Dr. Kayse Shrum, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Jerome Loughridge will hold a press conference later today to discuss the state's new COVID-19 testing supply that arrived Thursday as well as the state's expanding capacity to process thousands of COVID-19 tests per day.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is evaluating the data obtained from the satellite testing sites and will continue to provide updates on the progress of additional sites opening in the coming days.
With the number of cases rising each day, the OSDH urges the public to follow the Governor's "Safer at Home" executive order advising vulnerable populations and those over the age of 65 to stay home until April 16 and for non-essential businesses in counties with COVID-19 cases to temporarily suspend services until April 16. The CDC also recommends the public to stay home, practice social distancing, hand washing, and specifically for those who are sick to isolate for up to 14 days.

OSDH Moves to Online Vital Record Services

In order to protect the health of the public and reduce the number of staff in the office, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) will temporarily suspend lobby and mail application services for Vital Records until further notice. This includes the offices in Oklahoma City, McAlester and Tulsa.
During this time, a limited number of Vital Records staff will remain on site to fill online and phone requests.
Additionally, staff will be working remotely with hospitals, physicians and funeral directors to assure birth and death records continue to be filed in a timely manner.
Birth and death records are of the utmost importance during a health crisis as the collective health information acquired from these records informs leadership and guides best practice recommendations to promote positive outcomes.
Oklahoma funeral homes can order death certificates through a dedicated portal. In 2019, more than 8,000 orders were placed by funeral services for over 35,000 records using the portal. While the OSDH does not accept online orders directly, the Office of Vital Records has partnered with VitalChek to make this service available. VitalChek has waived the $6 portal fee for the next 30 days for any funeral director who has not previously accessed the portal.
For more information on submitting on-line and phone orders, please visit: https://govstatus.egov.com/oklahoma-coronavirus-information.
You may also email the Vital Records Service at [email protected] with any additional questions.

You Want Me to Stay Home for How Long?

As businesses, places of worship and schools continue to close, the reality of our new world is settling in, and we’re not sure entirely what to think of it. For many of us – this presents a minor inconvenience. Perhaps we have paid sick leave we can access, or a job that allows for remote work. However, for our friends, neighbors and family who work hourly jobs, asking them to self-quarantine is likely causing a lot of anxiety. How will I pay my bills? How will we cover our mortgage or rent? What happens when I miss my first paycheck?
We want to make sure you are taking the steps, and have access to resources to keep your spiritual, emotional and physical health up during these times. Here are some tips and resources to help you through it.
Have a routine for you and other members of your household. You don’t have to get all dressed up like your leaving the house, but set alarms, have meals at a certain time and “schedule” the day as much as you can.
Keep up with your social engagements – virtually. Do you have coffee every Wednesday morning with the moms from the bus stop? Is there a regular happy hour you and your co-workers go to? Great! Pour your beverage of choice and set up a video chat with your service of choice.
Find ways to keep exercising. Many gyms are now offering streaming workout classes to help people stay busy and active during times of self-quarantine. Check out a list of options here.
Ask for help. If you’re feeling like it’s all too much, that’s ok. We understand that self-quarantine is a disruption in all of our lives, and depending on each of our unique situations, the stress, concern and anxiety may be different. If you need someone to talk to, call the disaster distress helpline at 1-800-985-5990 and talk to someone about how your feeling, and what you need.
Our community is so resilient. We have been through devastating natural disasters and acts of domestic terrorism. If you’re new to our state – know that while COVID-19 may be new to us, we are not new to responding and helping our fellow Oklahomans

Is Anything Open?

If you’ve been out and about in the community, traffic probably seems a lot lighter. Kids are not waiting at bus stops, the line at your favorite coffee spot is much shorter. This week Governor Stitt ordered all non-essential businesses be closed in Oklahoma counties with confirmed COVID-19 cases for the next 21 days.
You may be asking yourself, what now? How do I manage my day-to-day with these types of closures? What exactly can I expect?
Here are a few tips to help you navigate these changes:
Non-essential businesses are those providing items or services that are socially driven. Think gyms, bars and other similar businesses and services.
Grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations and other services Oklahomans depend on to care for themselves and others are open, and you can find a full list of essential services here.
Check your favorite grocery store’s website before you head out for a gallon of milk or a couple rolls of toilet paper; many have reduced hours or are offering specific hours for members of our communities who are at higher risk.
If your ability to work will be impacted by these new restrictions, there are resources to help you. Check out Oklahoma Works for additional information on how to file an unemployment claim or access resources for alternate employment during this time.
We know it’s a lot to ask, especially if you are feeling well. Maybe, it’s starting to feel like you’re listening to a broken record, and well, you are. Just know these restrictions are being implemented after careful consideration, informed by science and facts.
Stay home, slow the spread, and protect our Oklahoma communities.

I can do it, You can do it, We can do it!

The increasing spread of COVID-19 across our nation is starting to make even the calmest among us begin to get anxious. It’s easy to wrap ourselves up in our own fears and worries, thinking only as far as those we are immediately responsible for – kids, parents, grandparents, our pets. But this is also an opportunity for us to begin to think about our communities.
This doesn’t mean the zip code our mail is delivered to. It’s the cul-de-sac, block, apartment complex or other housing community we may call home. Have you met your neighbors? Do you know their names or struggles?
What if the challenge of our self-quarantine stops being about all the things we can’t do, and starts being about all the things we can do? Let this be a challenge for each of us to learn something new about the people we should be in community with – and find ways to be more connected. Here are a few ideas to consider:
If you are well and have the means, leave a note on doors or in mailboxes with your name, phone number and an invitation to text or call for neighbors who may not be able to go out and get their own essentials.
Have kids? Great – set them up with some crayons and construction paper and ask them to draw pictures and write notes to deliver to neighbors and friends. (Bonus points because you’ve also conducted art class for the day.) People don’t need to open their doors for you to drop these off.
A music teacher in Edmond, Okla. recently posted on Facebook that she has started singing outside her neighbors’ windows to spread a little “light and love” as people stay in their homes.
We know this is hard. We know it feels like a forever change. But it’s not.
And maybe, at the end of this, we’ll find out that there is a lot more that brings us together, than divides us.

The Kids Are Driving Me Crazy!

You don’t have to scroll very far through social media to find a funny or sarcastic meme about the challenges of parents working from home and trying to keep kids entertained/educated/fed/healthy.
BREATHE.
We just started this crazy new normal and we want to remind you that COVID-19 is a disruption to your regularly scheduled programming. Give yourself some grace when trying to decide what will work best for you and your family. While we can’t promise to get you through math homework, we have compiled this short list of ways to make the time at home with your kids keep you sane, and your kids healthy and engaged.
Go Outside. Fresh air and activity is 100% okay, as long as you continue to be mindful of your surroundings and observe social distancing guidance. In fact our state parks are open and ready for you and your family to take a hike this weekend!
Flex Your Normal Rules. This is not the time to draw a line in the sand about an extra 20 minutes of screen time so you can finish that conference call or get that email out to your team. Cut yourself, and your kids, some slack. Be realistic about what rules you want to hold firm, and which ones you are willing to give on, and remember – chances are they’d prefer to be at school too.
Create New Routines. How many times have you silently wished that soccer practice was cancelled or math homework wasn’t required so you could simply sit down and enjoy a meal together? Now is your chance to create new routines. Like having dinner. At the same time. Together. Is there a chance to view this “disruption” as an opportunity to schedule time in your day-to-day to connect as a family?
Being a parent is a stressful job under normal circumstances, and these are extraordinary ones. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, reach out for help. We have mental health resources at the ready, all you need to do is pick up the phone and give us a call, 1-800-985-5990, we’re here to help.

Is Going for a Walk Essential?

So you made the decision to follow guidance and voluntarily self-quarantine or minimize your movements for the next 14 days.
First, thank you for making that choice to help protect our most vulnerable neighbors, family and friends. We fully recognize the inconvenience this will pose, and the impact it may have on you financially. We understand it is a sacrifice for the greater good, and we truly appreciate you for doing the right thing for our community as a whole.
So, now you need to figure out what your days look like in this quarantined lifestyle. You have probably seen lots of articles and information around what’s essential and what’s not.
Can you still run to the grocery store if you run out of toilet paper or milk?
Is it okay to take a walk around the block to get some fresh air or just quiet time away from the kids, partners or other housemates?
What about your dog? Is it okay to take Fido to the nearby dog park for some exercise and relief?
The short answer is, yes. You can still do all of those things. Your physical health and well-being are critical to our recovery from the impact of COVID-19.
The long answer goes something like this: If you need to run to the grocery store, be mindful of those around you. If you observe congestion in an aisle, keep moving and wait for it to break apart. Pay attention to where you are in the checkout line and observe social distancing guidelines of staying 6 feet apart. Try to make a list and get what you may need to get you through the length of your voluntary quarantine. Wash your hands before and after any trips and grab a little bit of hand sanitizer for yourself (and to share with your cashier!).
Please, take that walk around the block and get fresh air. Let Fido run around the dog park. But just like at the grocery store, be mindful of your surroundings. Maintain that social distance of 6 feet to protect yourself and others from potential exposures. If you are approaching others during your walk, cross the street or simply stop and move an appropriate distance away to ensure safe distance when you pass one another.
Your health and well-being is essential, and undertaking activities to ensure that you and your loved ones can maintain good health is essential. Just use common sense when you do.

OSDH Enters Into New Public-Private Partnership Expanding Oklahoma's Capacity for COVID-19 Tests, Results

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) today announced it has entered into a new public-private partnership with Diagnostic Labs of Oklahoma (DLO) to increase the State of Oklahoma’s capacity for delivering results for COVID-19 tests. As a result of the new partnership, more than 300 test specimens were immediately shipped yesterday to DLO’s facility in Dallas, Texas, for results within the next couple days.
“The Oklahoma State Department of Health appreciates the strengthened partnership with DLO to send COVID-19 test kits to its facilities in Dallas for rapid results,” said Commissioner of Health Gary Cox. “The state is committed to expanding testing and result capacity by building out more public-private partnerships here at home and across the United States. Thanks to action taken at the federal level, we are expecting more supplies to come online in the coming days to support our efforts."
The state’s partnership with DLO will allow current demand for COVID-19 test results to be met within a two- to three-day time frame. The Public Health Laboratory will continue to prioritize its limited in-house supply for delivering results within 24-hours for Oklahoma’s most vulnerable populations. Vulnerable populations are identified as follows:
Where a cluster of individuals are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, such as a nursing home.
Individuals who are age 60 or older
Children or adults who have compromised immune systems
“As this new public-private lab partnership expands Oklahoma’s capacity to deliver timely results, it will allow the OSDH, county health departments, hospitals, health care providers and others begin pursuing innovative options for increasing access to COVID-19 testing,” Cox said.

State of Oklahoma eligible for FEMA funding related to COVID-19 response

SBA declaration for small businesses submitted and awaiting federal approval



OKLAHOMA CITY (March 19, 2020) – As part of President Trump’s declaration of a nationwide emergency, the State of Oklahoma, local, county and tribal governments are eligible to receive federal funding for emergency protective measures related COVID-19 response efforts, as well as direct federal assistance.



Governor Kevin Stitt filed paperwork with FEMA today to move forward with the process for all 77 Oklahoma counties approved for this assistance program.



This funding is made available through a federal Emergency Declaration, which authorizes limited parts of FEMA’s Public Assistance Program to supplement state, territorial, tribal, and local government efforts in providing emergency services, such as the protection of lives, property, public health, and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe.



Reimbursable emergency protective measures may include the activation of Emergency Operations Centers, National Guard costs, law enforcement and other activities necessary to protect public health and safety. The assistance is provided at a 75 percent federal cost share.



Additionally, Governor Stitt on Tuesday requested an Economic Injury Disaster Loan declaration from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) due to COVID-19. The state is in contact with SBA and awaiting approval of the request. Once approved, businesses will be able to apply for the low-interest disaster loans online at SBA.gov.



More than 2,600 Oklahoma business owners have reported their economic impact through the state’s damage assessment website, damage.ok.gov. Those business owners will be notified by the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management as soon as approval is received.

This funding is made available through a federal Emergency Declaration, which authorizes limited parts of FEMA’s Public Assistance Program to supplement state, territorial, tribal, and local government efforts in providing emergency services, such as the protection of lives, property, public health, and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe.



Reimbursable emergency protective measures may include the activation of Emergency Operations Centers, National Guard costs, law enforcement and other activities necessary to protect public health and safety. The assistance is provided at a 75 percent federal cost share.



Additionally, Governor Stitt on Tuesday requested an Economic Injury Disaster Loan declaration from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) due to COVID-19. The state is in contact with SBA and awaiting approval of the request. Once approved, businesses will be able to apply for the low-interest disaster loans online at SBA.gov.



More than 2,600 Oklahoma business owners have reported their economic impact through the state’s damage assessment website, damage.ok.gov. Those business owners will be notified by the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management as soon as approval is received.
