Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership continues to closely monitor the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We are following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the OKC-County Health Department (OCCHD) recommendations on prevention and spread of the virus. The safety of our community is our number one priority.
Our community health depends on working together, and our small businesses are the lifeblood of the Downtown Oklahoma City economy. We want to make sure they continue to stay successful while maintaining appropriate public health safety measures. We will continue to update the site with relevant news and links to provide resources to our community, stakeholders and businesses.
