KS)--Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt today announced new restrictions as the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations surge across the state. In a news conference, Stitt announced new mandates to limit bar and restaurant capacity in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus. Effective Thursday, bars and restaurants must close by 11:00 p.m., except for to-go and drive-thru orders. Restaurants will also have to space out all tables six feet apart. For booths and other seating that cannot be spaced out, dividers must be installed between seating areas. Stitt implored Oklahomans to "buckle down" and change their habits in order to curb the growing number of COVID-19 cases that is occurring in Oklahoma and across the country. The governor cited the surge in COVID-19 cases and a 19% increase in hospitalizations in the past week as the catalyst for new restrictions. Stitt also announced all state employees and visitors to state facilities will be required to wear masks. The mask mandate for state employees will take effect Wednesday.
