TULSA, Okla. — Mayor G.T. Bynum says the peak for the coronavirus in Tulsa appears to be early next week, but we shouldn't expect to see the peak load on our hospitals until early May.

Bynum also says the social distancing measures over the last several weeks are working.

"As we head into the peak contagion moment, we can not let up now," he said.

Bynum says 800 people have contacted the Tulsa Responds Task Force for no interest loans to help businesses until federal funding comes in.
