Officials at Fort Sill, the U.S. Army installation in Lawton, said a basic training outbreak of COVID-19 was to blame for a recent spike in Comanche County, but that trends are overall encouraging.
"Most of that spike was a COVID pocket here in our basic training population," said Commanding Gen. Kenneth Kamper during a virtual town hall on Tues., Aug. 25th.
"They're all doing OK. They're just fine," Kamper said.
According to Fort Sill spokesperson Jessica Tackaberry, the cases were centered around trainees in the 434th Field Artillery Brigade.
