Tulsa Health




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.


A Safer at Home Order remains in place for Tulsans over 65 years of age and those with underlying medical conditions. 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


Stay Home if You're Sick

Stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others. Contact your medical provider for next steps and guidance.


Sneezes and Coughs


Cover Your Coughs and Sneezes

Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.


Wash Your Hands


Wash Your Hands Often

Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.


Touching Face


Avoid Touching Your Face

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.


Social Distance


Practice Physical Distancing

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 Often
