OSDH: Garfield County tops 500 cumulative COVID-19 cases; 161 active Wednesday

ENID, Okla. — The number of cumulative COVID-19 cases surpassed 500 in Garfield County Wednesday, with the Oklahoma State Department of Health reporting 161 of those currently active and 346 recovered. There have been five deaths, all Enid residents, overall in the county.

Compared to others in the state, Garfield County has the 16th highest number of cases, while Enid has the 17th highest among Oklahoma cities and towns. Oklahoma City and Tulsa combined account for 36.2% of the state's cumulative cases, while Garfield County is at 1.1% of the total.

The cases in Enid and Garfield County are the highest in Northwest Oklahoma, with Kingfisher coming the closest at 139 for the county and 61 for the city, based on OSDH data. While Kingfisher County has 27% of the cases Garfield County has, it also is at 25% of the population, according to U.S. census data.

Garfield County started out with COVID-19 cases at a slower pace but lately has been seeing 8-10 cases per day, said Maggie Jackson, OSDH regional director of community engagement and health planning for District 2, which covers Blaine, Canadian, Garfield, Grant, Kingfisher, Logan and Major counties. Jackson also represents the Alfalfa County office.

"It seems like it's been years since the COVID pandemic started," Jackson said. She said Northwest Oklahoma has not grown at the rate that more metro areas, such as Canadian County in her district, has seen, but it's still been disheartening for many in the health care industry. She suggested there continues to be burn out among the caregivers.

"Give a nurse a hug day is what we need,' she said.

Support from the public goes a long way toward helping, Jackson said.

"I know the members of the public are getting tired of it. It's still here. We still don't have a vaccine. People still continue to die."

It's a message that comes as school starts today in Enid — as it already has or will in other communities — with an uncertain future regarding how that will affect the spread of the virus.

"I agree with the CDC that there are so many other benefits in going to school," she said, adding using masks and the extra precautions schools are implementing hopefully will go a long way toward a positive outcome.

Jackson said Garfield County has been blessed with "two professional hospitals that are competent and a Health Department that has gone above and beyond every day."

Immunization clinics for back-to-school are being held 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. this week and next at Garfield County Health Department, Jackson said.

She said the county health department's COVID team of nurse and nurse practitioner and their focus on the virus have been instrumental in allowing other professionals to provide the clinic and other areas of care.

"We're seeing that effort come together in a crisis that is unprecedented," she said. "Oklahoma neighbors coming together, that's what we need.

"Hang in there everybody, and keep wearing a mask."

Statewide, the number of additional cases increased by 670 on Wednesday, with 20 of those in Garfield County, and nine additional deaths were reported by the 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. Testing is by appointment only for Blaine County, 521 W. 4th, Watonga, (580) 623-7977; Garfield County, 2501 S. Mercer, Enid, (580) 233-0650; Grant County, 115 N. Main, Medford, (580) 395-2906; Kingfisher County, 124 E. Sheridan, courthouse annex room #101, Kingfisher, (405) 375-3008; Major County, 501 E. Broadway, Fairview, (580) 227-3362; Noble County, 300 Fir St., Perry, (580) 336-2257; Woods County, 511 Barnes St., Alva, (580) 327-3192; and Woodward County, 1631 Texas Ave., Woodward, (580) 256-6416. For a full list of county drive-through testing, go to https://coronavirus.health.ok.gov/drive-thru-testing. Some health department also advise the public to check their Facebook pages for more information regarding testing.

COVID-19 signs

Emergency warning signs for COVID-19 are trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face, according to the CDC. More information can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html.

Those with symptoms of COVID-19 should call ahead to local emergency rooms. Those with minor symptoms should contact their regular physicians.
