Oklahoma will begin phase 3 of reopening plan on June 1, Gov. Kevin Stitt said Friday.

Under phase 3 of the Open Up and Recover Safely plan, businesses may resume unrestricted staffing at their worksites by observing proper CDC-recommended social distancing protocols and are recommended to continue increased cleaning and disinfecting practices.

Summer camps are allowed to open if they follow safety guidelines. Businesses operating by appointment only may begin accepting walk-in clients at their discretion.

“We are making responsible decisions based on the data in our state,” Stitt said in a news release. “While cases continue to decline 36 days into our reopening, it is important Oklahomans remember COVID-19 is still in the United States and we must continue to be diligent about washing our hands frequently, maintaining physical distance and protecting our most vulnerable populations.”

Free COVID-19 testing remains available to all Oklahomans at more than 80 locations across the state. Detailed information is available at coronavirus.health.ok.gov.
