COVID-19 April 27 UPDATE

Apr. 27, 2020

There are 3,280 COVID-19 Cases in Oklahoma with 197 deaths in the State
I have had a few calls this month from members saying they have charges on their credit card from Oklahoma Funeral Directors Association. Unfortunately we have not been running credit cards for almost a month.  We did find out that charges from VITAL RECORDS have been showing up as OKFDA charges. If you have a strange charge on your account please call vital records or call your bank.
Here is some more information from the Governor's plan to reopen Oklahoma:
