A resident of the City of Kingfisher has tested positive for the coronavirus, the City announced on its social media.

The person resides and works in the area, and the patient has followed guidance and precautions as symptoms developed, city officials said.

The case has not been tallied into the state's tracking website because the test was conducted through a private lab. 

"This post is not designed to cause panic or alarm, but we do have a verified case of a positive testing for COVID-19 from an individual that resides and works in our community," the post read.

The post said the patient appears to be making a full recovery.

City officials are asking the public and businesses to increase measures to prevent the spread of the virus. Once the state confirms the case, the county will be under Gov. Kevin Stitt's "Safer-At-Home" executive order.
