Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt said Wednesday that he has tested positive for coronavirus, a day after the state reported a record number of new COVID-19 cases.
Stitt made the announcement in a Zoom call with reporters along with his interim Health Commissioner, Lance Frye.
Stitt led a meeting of the Commissioners of the Land Office on Tuesday morning. He wore a mask around his neck but otherwise led the meeting without a mask and answered reporters’ questions after the meeting.
A member of Stitt’s cabinet, David Ostrowe, tested positive for the coronavirus in March and quarantined for two weeks.
