Correction: Oct. 28, 2021: The story “A federal appeals court has halted Oklahoma’s first planned executions in six years” misstated who was responsible for denying John Marion Grant’s clemency application. The state’s Pardon and Parole Board declined the application, not Gov. Kevin Stitt.

Correction: June 3, 2021: The story We fact checked the debate over a new law on what Oklahoma students learn about race” originally misstated information about a class offered at Oklahoma City Community College based on information provided by the school. The class was offered in the social sciences division, not the health profession division.

Clarification: May 21, 2021: A previous version of the story “Oklahoma Public Health Lab director resigning after 4 months on the job” stated some of the lab’s work was temporarily done out of a trailer. Though the mobile lab will be used for that purpose, it won’t arrive in Oklahoma until the fall.

Clarification: May 3, 2021: After further review to the projected reductions in Medicaid service utilization, we changed our call from “mostly false” to “somewhat misleading” in the story “We fact checked the debate over privatizing Medicaid in Oklahoma.” Only the rating has been changed. While it’s true that hospitalization service utilization could be reduced by 40 percent, the cited tweet contains incomplete information.

Correction: Feb. 22, 2021: The story Oklahoma County promised to fix its jail more than 10 year ago, but deaths and staffing issues continue” misstated how the Oklahoma County Detention Center ‘s death rate compares to the rest of the nation. The Oklahoma County Detention Center had a death rate of 3.3 per 1,000 over the past 10 years, which is more than the national average of 1.46 deaths per 1,000 for the same period, not less than the national average.
