OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) โ€“ As the number of coronavirus cases continues to climb across Oklahoma, health officials are expanding the list of places where residents are at a higher risk of catching the virus.

In recent weeks, the Oklahoma City-County Health Department has released a list of the places where you are more likely to catch COVID-19.

Officials say some of those spots have included churches, restaurants, and office settings.

โ€œWeโ€™ve been seeing individuals that tested positive and then maybe their colleague tested positive days later,โ€ LToya Knighten, Oklahoma City-County Health Department government affairs liaison, said.  

Now, officials say they are expanding the list to include the ‘serious six:’

  • Jails/prisons
  • Restaurants
  • Daycares
  • Manufacturing warehouses
  • Office settings
  • Faith-based venues.

Officials say the list is based on data collected from July 21 through August 4 as a result of contact tracing.
