OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – For the first time in more than a month, businesses across much of the state will reopen their doors to the public.

Under Gov. Stitt’s “Open Up and Recover Safely” plan, many businesses are allowed to open on May 1 as long as they follow sanitation and social distancing protocols.

Beginning May 1, the following businesses can reopen:

  • Dining areas
  • Entertainment venues
  • Movie theaters
  • Sporting venues
  • Gyms
  • Places of worship
  • Tattoo parlors (for appointment only).

On April 24, person care businesses like hair and nail salons were able to open for appointments, and state parks were reopened to the public.

If you plan to go out, experts say you should still practice social distancing, wash your hands, disinfect frequently-used items as much as possible, and consider using face coverings in public.

You should call ahead to your favorite eatery to make sure they are opening on May 1 as some have chosen to wait.
