The Oklahoma Senate will remain closed this week.

Senators and some staff were tested for COVID-19 last week after learning they were potentially exposed to the illness.

According to a statement from Senate President Pro Tem Greg Treat, those tests, done by OU Medicine, have not come back yet due to overwhelming demand on the private lab they were sent to.

Treat said senators are continuing their work, but no plans have been made for when the 2020 session or the state budget will be completed.
