OKLAHOMA CITY (April 5, 2020) – Governor Kevin Stitt announced that President Donald Trump has approved his request for a Major Disaster Declaration covering all 77 Oklahoma counties.

COVID-19 is a virus identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China in 2019 and has since spread globally into a pandemic.

COVID-19 has changed much of our daily routine. But delivering your mail and packages is not one of those changes. To help keep you and our employees safe during this time, the Postal Service wants you to know about how we are adapting delivery procedures to promote social distancing. If your delivery requires a signature, carriers will knock on the door rather than touching the bell. They will maintain a safe distance, and instead of asking you for a signature on the mobile device, they will ask you for your first initial and last name. Then the carrier will leave your mail or package in a safe place for you to retrieve. Don’t try to take your delivery directly from a carrier, and please give them the time to walk away before collecting it. The CDC, WHO, as well as the Surgeon General have indicated there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through mail and packages. So please help us serve you by maintaining a safe distance.

The biggest question looming over the collegiate athletics landscape is a simple one: “Will there be football in the fall?”

As a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Danilo Gallinari was in the stadium the moment the league found out that Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus and the NBA season was subsequently suspended.

During the most uncertain period in the history of American sports, the NFL delivered a surprisingly unflinching message on Tuesday:

The league is not only planning to have a full season in 2020 — it’s expecting that season to start on schedule.

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI: Blake Bell #81 was a member of the Chiefs roster for a single season after being signed in free agency last year by general manager Brett Veach.

Bell took the place of longtime TE2 Demetrius Harris, who left for the Cleveland Browns.

Opinions

DEAR ABBY: How would you suggest I deal with people who continually want to sabotage my diet? I worked very hard to drop more than 30 pounds. I also have digestive health issues that are no one’s business.

Hi, Helaine: My partner and I are both in our mid-40s. He earns about half what I do. Almost all our monthly income goes toward paying down our debt: There’s the mortgage, two newer cars, a $40,000 401(k) loan, a $9,000 student loan and $16,000 in credit card debt. About half his monthly income goes to child support and will for one more year.

Dear Doctor: I’m a healthy and active 42-year-old, but I’ve been noticing a change in my periods lately. They’re not as regular as before, and they’re a lot shorter. Could this be perimenopause? What’s going on, and what else is going to happen?

There have been a few moments in recent weeks when the new reality of the coronavirus epidemic hit me in special ways. One of them was when Amazon put books on the bottom of its priority list. Bookish type that I am, that is what Amazon is for me: books. And I’ve rediscovered the bookstores and distributors I used to rely on before Amazon made things so simple.
