OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Legislative Office of Fiscal Transparency (LOFT) is meeting Thursday to discuss the state's COVID-19 contact-tracing program.

In a report posted to okloft.gov, the committee found that:

  1. The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) lacked sufficient contact-tracing data to measure impact on limiting spread of COVID-19.
  2. OSDH’s COVID reporting failed to align with stakeholders’ needs to make policy decisions.
  3. Communicable disease reporting was a known vulnerability prior to COVID-19.


LOFT will meet at 1 p.m. at the State Capitol.
