A new trend with COVID has emerged: COVID cases in 18-35 year olds (32.7%) now surpass the number of cases for seniors aged 65+ (18.7%). Be aware that COVID remains rampant with Oklahoma cases spiking very sharply upward, and age does not make a person invulnerable: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html

Due to DOD policy, we cannot announce the total number of positive COVID-19 cases. However, you can visit www.defense.gov to find the cumulate number of cases across the DOD.
