The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is beginning its transition toward the endemic phase of this pandemic. In doing so, we will publish COVID-19 data once a week, on Thursday. By releasing data weekly, Oklahomans will get a better picture of what is happening throughout the state. The weekly report will contain a seven day average of new cases based on collection date of the specimen or symptom onset occurring the previous week. Data released in the report is preliminary and subject to change if additional information is obtained by OSDH.
The key metrics reported in our weekly report, the seven day average of new cases and 3-day average of hospitalizations, more accurately represent the impact of disease in the community. As we begin the gradual transition toward the endemic phase of the pandemic, the OSDH stands well equipped to battle future possible surges and, if seen fit, can adjust reporting as needed.
