Trump Tulsa

The Tulsa Health Department plans to issue an RFP to PR firms looking for their input on the content of a public awareness program to promote best practices to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Leanne Stephens, a spokesperson for the Department, told the Tulsa World that it wants to reach “vulnerable populations, particularly non-English-speaking residents.”

The goal is to “ensure that Tulsa county residents are informed about the stuff they can take personally to keep themselves and their families safe from COVID-19.”

Tulsa plans to spend $600K for the public awareness effort.

The city stood in the national spotlight on June 20 when president Trump held his first indoor rally during the pandemic to re-launch his 2020 campaign.

About 6,200 people, most of them not wearing masks, showed up at the BOK Center, which has a 19,000 seat capacity.

Some blamed fear of COVID-19 for the poor turnout.
