CDC Update - COVID-19 Delta Variant
The Oklahoma State Department of Health follows CDC guidance on the virus. Here are the latest recommendations:
- Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalization, and death and also helps reduce the spread of the virus in communities.
- Data shows Delta is different than past versions of the virus and is much more contagious. Virtually all hospitalizations and deaths continue to be among the unvaccinated.
- CDC recommends that everyone (including fully vaccinated individuals) wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas with high transmission.
