Tulsa County COVID-19 Updates
On July 21, Tulsa County reached the milestone that 1 percent of residents have tested positive for COVID-19. The United States reached this milestone on July 13. To date, there have been no recent infectious diseases that have spread so rapidly as to infect 1 percent of the population in less than six months.
