What Dr. John Wedlake, a Stillwater City Councilman, had to say about supporting mandatory masks:

"As a medical doctor, the only practicing neurologist within at least a 50-mile radius, and one of Stillwater's City Councilors, I speak to a multitude of doctors on a daily basis. All of the physicians I have consulted support the wearing of masks in areas of communal gathering as a means to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We don't make this recommendation with our comfort, or even our convenience in mind...we do so because we have read the literature, we've seen the data, and the mounting evidence that properly-fitting masks limit incidence of disease and spread of SARS-COV-2.

I can empathize with your feelings regarding masks, but please try to understand that our decisions were based on trying to provide the greatest safety to our constituents and municipality, while minimizing disruption of normalcy. I know masks are not as convenient as ‘no masks,’ and for that I apologize. It was a decision with no perfect outcome, but one that had to be made."

Meanwhile, 100% compliance with everybody being required to wear masks in the Perkins Rd. Wal-Mart, Stillwater on Sunday morning. A worker at the entrance provided free masks at the entrance for customers who didn't have any.

I am here in Arizona for a week where there is a mask mandate. I went into a Family Dollar this morning. None of the staff was wearing masks. They had just opened. And delivery drivers were bringing in merchandise without masks. All the customers were wearing them. Most stores will stop people at the door without a mask so you get 100% compliance that way. Most stores seem to have 100% compliance.



I get it. Oklahoma has a small window to slow down the cases or they could be next Arizona. Arizona waited until it was way out of hand.

New cases have averaged 1,000 a day for the last two days which is a huge increase. OKC appears to be outpacing Tulsa. I also noticed that Jackson County went from having about 55 total cases up until two days ago to 128 total today. I am sure what caused the massive increase there.

Thank God Oklahoma isn't on any list of states most likely needing to go back to a shutdown.

I was in OKC today and they have the mask mandate in effect. many stores have signs saying you cannot enter without a mask and people seemed to be following it.



Oklahoma had over 1700 new cases today on world o meters, another site I look at had 892 cases. Payne County at least has been going down the past couple weeks.

There was a state reporting error over the weekend so today there was a catch up of 800 cases that should have been counted over the weekend.

4,700 new covid cases in Oklahoma yesterday. More than double any other day. Does anyone know if it was a data dump or a real spike in cases?

Not sure but almost has to be a data dump type thing like on July 21st. You can see both of those down on number of cases chart.



Stay safe.
