Oklahoma Legislator Urges Mask Mandate


A state lawmaker who recovered from COVID-19 is calling on Governor Kevin Stitt to issue a mask mandate.

Representative Jason Lowe says seeing the rapid rise in cases is alarming, and Oklahomans must still do what we can to protect ourselves and our communities.

The Oklahoma City Democrat urges Stitt to follow his fellow governors to put the health and safety of citizens first by mandating masks in public spaces and private businesses.

Lowe says matters of public health should never be partisan and is applauding the mandates by leaders in Oklahoma City, Norman and Tulsa.
