The Tulsa Department of Health reported 259 new cases of coronavirus today.
"As numbers are growing in the month of June across the state, we are seeing the same steep upward trends here in Tulsa County," Dr. Bruce Dart, executive director of the Tulsa Health Department, said during a news conference on Wednesday.
Dart also said that 92% of the new cases were from June 14-20 and that 40% of all of the new cases came from the 18 to 35 age group.
"We knew we'd see an increase in cases as our local economy reopened, but this has been higher than projected," Dart said.
He went on to say that more than half of the hospitalizations are of people under the age of 50.
There are a total of 2,742 total cases and 66 deaths in Tulsa County.
