Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) announced his intention to “get our summer back” in the state by removing all coronavirus restrictions including the mandate to wear a mask in state buildings.
“The standard for normal cannot be zero cases,” he said. “In Oklahoma, the standard for normal is freedom. The freedom to worship, the freedom to go to work and earn a paycheck, the freedom to visit your loved ones in nursing homes, the freedom to send your kids to school in person, and the freedom to protect your family however you see fit.
“As long as I’m governor, I will protect the freedoms of Oklahomans,” he declared.
Stitt said there were fewer than 300 people in hospitals with the coronavirus and that new cases were lower than last summer.
Other states that value freedom should follow Oklahoma’s lead.
