Oklahoma COVID-19 Updates
Due to a decrease in community spread and hospitalizations of COVID-19, four Oklahoma City health systems will suspend tri-weekly updates to this website.
This joint website was created as a way for INTEGRIS Health, Mercy, OU Health and SSM Health St. Anthony to provide regular updates on COVID-19 patient counts and bed availability while Oklahoma experienced a significant surge of coronavirus infections that overwhelmed the medical community. While the overall census at each hospital remains unseasonably high, the health systems are encouraged by the decrease in community spread of COVID.
The final website update was posted Wednesday, Oct. 13. If needed in the future, updates will resume, but the hope is that Oklahoma will never see another surge in COVID cases.
The health systems are grateful for the community’s support during this challenging time and attribute the decline in community spread to the mitigation efforts of all.
Since the hospitals began publicly reporting data in August, Oklahoma County saw an 11% increase in first dose increase in vaccinations against COVID-19.
The Oklahoma medical community recommends continued commitment to reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during the fall and upcoming holiday seasons.
