Seven new COVID-19 cases were reported Friday in LeFlore County, according to LeFlore County Emergency Management Director Kim Wheeler.
This comes on the heals of 14 total cases in the county over a two-day period Wednesday and Thursday โ€” 12 Wednesday and two Thursday.
However, Wheeler said that four of Wednesday's cases gave no specific locations, only that they were in LeFlore County.
The seven new cases Friday were four in Poteau and one each in Howe, Pocola and Spiro.
