As the Oklahoma National Guard wraps up deployment for hundreds of its troops, some will stay on the ground helping as COVID-19 numbers rise.
Lt. Co. Robert Griffin said they are now down to about 125 troops who will help with contact tracing.
"It's been the opportunity of a lifetime for a lot of soldiers to give back to the state," Griffin said. "This was just another way to show our ability to help the state of Oklahoma"
They will continue to help with contact tracing through about Aug. 21.
