Conservative Groups Call For Reopening Businesses

A group led by a Tulsa Tea Party leader organized small groups of people to rally from their cars at city halls in Oklahoma City and Tulsa on Monday. The group is protesting stay-at-home orders aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus.

The organizer, Ronda Vuillemont-Smith, tells The Oklahoman that government can't shut down the state for less than 200 deaths without citizens becoming frustrated.

The group – calling itself OK Back 2 Work – also staged a rally last week at the state capitol and plans more to urge state and local leaders to reopen businesses.
