Gov. Stitt says Oklahoma is “on track” to begin phase two of reopening plan


Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt announced during a news conference Wednesday, May 6, that Oklahoma is on track to begin phase two of the state’s reopening plan amid the coronavirus pandemic. Stitt urges Oklahomans to continue practicing social distancing guidelines and washing their hands frequently.

Phase Two

Elderly and vulnerable Oklahomans will continue to follow Safer-At-Home guidelines.

Nonessential travel can resume.

Employers should still close common areas and gathering places.

Organized sport activities can reopen under strict social distancing and sanitation protocols.

Bars will also be allowed to reopen with diminished standing room occupancy, social distancing and sanitation.

Funerals and weddings can resume with no more than 10 people.

Children’s areas and places of worship can reopen.

If hospital and incident rates once again remain manageable, the state would move to Phase Three.


Gov. Stitt said in a press conference in late April that once the state is in Phase Two, guidance on Phase Three will be released and that if numbers increase, the state will reassess and possibly pull back on the relaxation of measures.
