With the latest data coming in on Sunday from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, Logan County currently has the most active cases for the county since the start of the pandemic.
Sunday’s report shows eight additional cases from Saturday, 18 in the last two days, to move the total confirmed number of COVID cases to 220 for the county that has an estimated population of 48,000.
Logan County now has 44 active cases, which marks the highest point since July 15 when there was 41 cases. Of the 220 total cases, 175 people have recovered from the virus.
The increase in cases revolves mostly around the town of Crescent, who now has 11 active cases. Just days ago, there was no active cases in the town in the western portion of the county.
The additional cases appear to be in the student population of Crescent Public Schools as the school district recently announced they are pushing the start of school back to Aug. 18.
“It has been confirmed that there are Covid-19 positive test results in our student population,” Crescent Superintendent Bart Watkins said in a letter. “We at Crescent Schools hold our students’ safety as our first priority and will make every effort to ensure that their school experience is safe.”
