ENID, Okla. — Thirteen deaths, including one in Garfield County, reported Tuesday by the Oklahoma State Department of Health pushed the overall number of those who have tested positive for COVID-19 and died past the 500 mark.

There were 1,089 new COVID-19 cases, including 15 in Northwest Oklahoma counties, according to the OSDH on Tuesday.

An Enid man in the 73701 Zip Code was one of three in the 50-64 age group who had tested positive for COVID-19 and died, according to OSDH.

COVID-19 testing

State Health Department officials are encouraging Oklahomans to get tested for COVID-19, saying recently that due to adequate supplies, residents no longer need to exhibit symptoms or report exposure to someone with the virus to get in line for testing.

Free testing for COVID-19 is ongoing at the Garfield County and other state Health Departments.
