GOP Oklahoma Gov Announces Plan To Reopen State

Fox News reports:

Oklahoma is set to become the latest state to reopen some businesses on Friday amid the coronavirus pandemic after Gov. Kevin Stitt announced that hair salons, spas, nail salons and pet groomers can open their doors.

Stitt’s announcement, in which he said that the shops will be open by appointment only and will have to maintain social distancing and “strict sanitation protocols,” comes as a number of states have moved to reopen their economies as the country continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic that has sickened more than 839,000 people and killed almost 40,000.

“We rolled out a three-phased reopening plan,” Stitt said during an interview Wednesday afternoon on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto.” “A very measured reopening plan. Because the intent of my 15 executive orders was to flatten the curve and build capacity in our hospitals. And you’re seeing that.”

During his 2019 inaugural address, Stitt announced that he planned to use his time in office to “bring people to Jesus.”
