Oklahoma posted 241 new cases of COVID-19 and six additional deaths over the long holiday weekend.

The latest counts from the Oklahoma State Department of Health put the state’s total confirmed cases at 6,090. Since March 18, 313 people have died, and 940 have been hospitalized over the course of the outbreak.

The health department says more than 4,700 Oklahomans who have tested positive for the coronavirus have recovered, leaving the state with 1,063 known, active cases.

People are considered to have recovered if they did not die, are not currently hospitalized and it has been at least 14 days since they first experienced symptoms.

Symptoms have been reported to linger for several weeks, however, in some cases of COVID-19.
