The City of Tulsa is responding to a pandemic of respiratory disease spreading from person-to-person caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The disease, COVID-19, poses a serious public health risk. City government is working closely with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners, as well as public health partners, to respond to this situation. COVID-19 symptoms can include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and/or a new loss of taste or smell. Most severe illness occurs in older adults and those with serious underlying medical conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and lung disease.
Tulsans 65 years of age and older and those with underlying medical conditions should exercise additional caution. Please follow OSDH guidelines and recommendations. For the latest local updates on COVID-19, follow this page or visit the City of Tulsa Press Room.

Tips for Protecting Yourself & Others
While there is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus, proactive steps around hygiene and physical distancing can prevent the spread of the disease. For more information, see the Centers for Disease Control, Oklahoma State Department of Health, and the Tulsa Health Department.
NOTE: Presenting to a hospital when a flu-like illness is mild will cause an over demand on available resources and may expose other patients to COVID-19 who do not yet have the virus. You are safer at home unless your respiratory symptoms worsen and your breathing is impaired.
Stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others. Contact your medical provider for next steps and guidance.
Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people. Maintain at least six feet distance between yourself and others around you.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with bleach-based or alcohol-based cleaning products.
