Coronavirus: What You Need to Know

OSU Center for Health Sciences is dedicated to helping our communities and fellow citizens cope with COVID-19 pandemic by offering resources and up-to-date information. 

OSU health officials, in partnership with the Oklahoma State Department of Health, are closely monitoring the coronavirus in the state and county. 


You can limit your likelihood of contracting the coronavirus by following these guidelines: 

  • Get a COVID-19 vaccine
  • If you aren't vaccinated, wear a mask or face covering when in public and practice social distancing
  • Avoid close contact with people if you are not vaccinated. 
  • Wash your hands often. Use soap and water and wash for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer.  
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.  
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue, then throw the tissue into the trash.  
  • Disinfect frequently touched objects or surfaces.
