School shutdowns urged despite local COVID-19 rates

A group of House Democrats is urging the Oklahoma State Board of Education to mandate the closure of schools in counties with COVID-19 rates above a certain threshold.

Center of Family Love Blown Away By All The Love

The residents at the Center of Family Love (CFL) were smiling ear to ear on the morning of Thursday August 20th as they geared up to see their friends and family during the “Share the Love” drive by parade! CFL is a premiere residential and vocational nonprofit revolutionizing the care for individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities. Due to the increased risk of serious complications from COVID-19 for individuals with disabilities, CFL has been closed to the public including family, volunteers, and supporters since the beginning of March. All residents have remained on campus or in their respective homes since that time.
