The Oklahoma State Board of Education voted Wednesday to close public schools statewide for the remainder of the school year and to turn to distance learning in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus, which has now infected 164 Oklahomans.
“We need all Oklahomans to take this really, really seriously,” Stitt said. “If we take no measures at all, the cases will outstrip the capacity in our health care system.”
