The Oklahoma State Department of Health announced Friday the first presumptive positive COVID-19 case in Oklahoma County.

The individual is a woman in her 60s who recently traveled to Florida, officials said. She is in isolation at home and public health officials are looking into who she came into contact with before she was quarantined.

There are now four cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.

The announcement comes shortly after President Trump declared a national emergency regarding the novel coronavirus pandemic, which will provide federal funding to address the health crisis.
