Governor Stitt announced the expansion of the Governor's Soultion Task Force.

“COVID-19 is affecting far more than just public health, and this task force is a proactive step to further strengthen our coordination between agencies and provide them any support necessary,” said Gov. Stitt. “The leaders I’ve tapped for this group are some of the brightest minds in their fields and I know they will continue to develop innovative and effective strategies to manage the State’s response.”

The Task Force is a multi-agency group of experts and support personnel to help strengthen Oklahoma's response to COVID-19 pandemic.

“This group will allow our state’s leaders to focus their efforts on the areas they know best,” said Gov. Stitt. “Their expertise will help us form a comprehensive response to COVID-19 and allow the Oklahoma State Department of Health and Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management to have additional support and resources.”
