Unemployment

OKLAHOMA CITY  – The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission reports that the state’s four-week average of unemployment claims has fallen below 100,000 for the first time since the jobless rate skyrocketed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The commission on Thursday said the rolling average for the week ending Oct. 10 was 90,445, down from 100,464 the previous week. More than 182,000 continuing claims were reported in late June as the state reopened following Gov. Kevin Stitt’s shutdown of many businesses in an effort to stem the spread of the virus. The state health department reported 1,221 additional virus cases for a total of 103,836 since the start of the pandemic.
