As stated by Oklahoma's News 4 in the article titled "Oklahoma School District Moves to Distance Learning Due to Rise in COVID-19 Cases, Quarantines", following a huge surge in the number of new COVID-19 cases in the district within the first week of school, Oklahoma City Public Schools announced that a mask requirement will be implemented.

OKCPS documented 88 students with COVID-19 and 31 staff members four days after the school year began.

The action was reportedly essential because the number of students quarantining due to close contact exposure caused the absence rate to exceed 25% of the student population.

A Facebook post by the district read the following: "Due to lack of teachers and overwhelming number of staff/students who have tested positive over the weekend, we will CLOSE SCHOOL FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK".
