Dr. Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force, visited Tulsa yesterday, where she met with officials including Gov. Kevin Stitt, Mayor G.T. Bynum, and Oklahoma State Department of Education Superintendent Joy Hofmeister. Media was not allowed in the room and Birx did not address or take questions from reporters as she has done in every other state she's visited thus far. Bynum says the governor's office declined to allow Tulsa Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart to attend the meeting.
