Currently there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with the transmission of the coronavirus. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is working in many ways to help keep people safe while the nation is coping with COVID-19. Food availability and food safety are vitally important to our well-being, and the FDA is working hard to help ensure the foods you, your family, and your pets eat are safe and available.

Tulsa Health Department recommends following CDC guidance for mass gatherings. This is guidance intended for organizers and staff responsible for planning mass gatherings or large community events in the United States. Everyone can do their part to help plan, prepare, and respond to this emerging public health threat.
Definition: A mass gathering is a planned or spontaneous event with a large number of people in attendance that could strain the planning and response resources of the community hosting the event. This includes concerts, festivals, conferences, worship services and sporting events.
Public health officials encourage event planners to review the guidance available on the CDC website and this website. The Tulsa Health Department will review safety plans for large events over 150 in Tulsa so health officials can work with event organizers on a case by case basis in making safe decisions as it relates to events in Tulsa. Plans can be submitted for review to email@example.com or can call the Tulsa Health Department at 918-582-9355. More information can be found on the City of Tulsa website.
