The Safer at Home order requires residents of all ages to stay home unless they are going to a job deemed essential under orders by Oklahoma Governor Stitt, buying groceries, picking up prescriptions, getting medical care, going to care for a family member or exercising while maintaining a 6-foot distance from others.

WHAT TO KNOW:

Connection Hub for Modified Services across Eastern Oklahoma in Response to COVID-19

211 Eastern Oklahoma serves as a connection hub to thousands of resources for people who need help and don’t know where to turn. Now more than ever, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are fulfilling this vital role as a community directory of modified resources available to people in Eastern Oklahoma. Service providers across our region are responding to the pandemic by adjusting their services, whether it be expanding available support to the community, or reducing services due to concern for the health and safety of their own staff.

This webpage will be updated regularly and will serve as a one-stop clearinghouse to announce modifications in the availability of critical services as the information becomes available to the 211EOK team from our partners. If you are viewing on a mobile device, scroll beyond the service updates for important links and announcements pertinent to our region.

211 Eastern Oklahoma will also continue to fulfill our traditional role in the community for information and referral to thousands of resources and services in the community. As it relates to COVID-19, we do ask our community to first check this webpage or search the 211EOK online directory first, and then if more information is still needed, please call our helpline by dialing 2-1-1.
