DD)--Oklahoma Highway Patrol’s ENDUI team will partner with law enforcement agencies across the state to conduct DUI checkpoints and provide extra patrols for New Year’s Eve to crack down on impaired drivers. It’s part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over effort. Additional deputies, troopers and officers will be on duty statewide looking for impaired drivers. If you are going to drink, Oklahomans are urged to find a safe ride by calling a sober driver, using a cab, Uber, Lyft or any other ride-share service, or having a designated driver.

CN)—Twenty-two more virus-related deaths, including an Enid man aged 65 or older, and 1,194 new COVID-19 cases were reported in the state since Monday, according to daily numbers released late this morning by the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Officials said 32,628 cases are considered active in the state.

 

A record number of Oklahomans are in the hospital with COVID-19. This is the first time since Christmas Eve, COVID-19 hospitalizations have been updated in Oklahoma. More than 1,900 people are in the hospital right now for COVID-19, and 499 of them are in the ICU. Both of these numbers are the most ever seen. Right now, most of the state is in tier 3 of the hospital surge plan. However, Oklahoma County is nearing tier 4, which is the highest hospital surge plan. It happens when hospitals have reached capacity based on region and state numbers. This would make it so that hospitals would have to limit surgeries to only emergencies, and also at that time, hospitals would have to use resource management tools to manage the demands on the hospitals.
