On November 16, 2020, Governor Kevin Stitt filed the Seventh Amended Executive Order 2020-20 which mandates face coverings or masks be worn over the mouth and nose by all persons on property, including buildings and office space, owned or leased by the State of Oklahoma beginning Tuesday, November 17.

Masks should be worn at all times where physical distancing measures may be difficult to observe. Non-compliance with this directive will result in the denial of service.
