Observercast 46: A Deep Responsibility To Us

Despite being promised otherwise, COVID-19 did not disappear from the headlines the day after the presidential election. In fact, nearly a month later, the pandemic’s grip on America – and Oklahoma – is tighter than ever, with deaths and hospitalizations soaring.

As state leaders from the governor to the State Board of Education resisted health professionals’ calls for a 77-county mask mandate, a grass roots group – Save Our State: Oklahomans United – coalesced into a social media powerhouse, working tirelessly to leverage their health care and advocacy know-how to push back against the state’s failure to protect its residents.

In this week’s Observercast – Episode 46: A Deep Responsibility To Us – two of SOS’s main administrators, Laura Bellis and Nate Morris, join us to discuss the steps the state should be taking to mitigate this disease and how we, as concerned residents, can impact change.
