Governor Stitt answered questions from the media prior to the Team Trump On Tour Rally, on June 20th, at the BOK Center in Tulsa. Governor Stitt stated that the arrested individual pictured previously was the only arrest made as of that time.

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt announced Wednesday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Stitt said that despite feeling a "little bit achy," he feels fine overall. 

"I want to use my story to remind Oklahomans that if you aren’t feeling well, we want you to get tested," Stitt said. "I’m going to keep working from home, isolating myself, and again, I feel fine, really, you might even say I’m asymptomatic, or just a slightly, little bit achy, but I really feel fine."

Stitt's wife and children have tested negative for the disease and he's isolating away from them at home.

He is the first governor to test positive for the disease.

Despite this positive test, Stitt says he's "not thinking of a mask mandate at all."

Oklahoma saw 1,075 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, a new single day record for the state.
