The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
Where can I find more information about all the cases in the US?
By law, the first payable (or allowable) week of the claim is considered to be a waiting period. Although you must still file your weekly claim (either by phone or internet), you will not be paid for the waiting period week.
No benefits will be paid if there are insufficient wages to establish monetary eligibility, if there is an issue being investigated, or if you do not file your weekly claim. Once benefits have been approved and the waiting period week is served, payments are made within 2-3 days of the weekly claim being filed.
Weekly claims are filed after the week ends but must be filed within fourteen days of the week ending date. All weeks run Sunday through Saturday.
Can I work part-time and still receive unemployment benefits in Oklahoma?
Yes. However, you must report the amount of money you earned, before any deductions were made, for each week, whether or not you were paid during the week. Earnings must be reported during the week you earn them, not when you actually receive the payment.
Work is anything you do for wages, including self-employment, during the seven days of the week you are claiming Unemployment Insurance benefits.
