An Oklahoma City TV station is reporting a southern Oklahoma state lawmaker has been hospitalized due to COVID-19.

State capitol sources told KWTV that Rep. Tommy Hardin (R-Madill) is hospitalized in Texas.

KWTV reports that lawmakers held a prayer gathering outside of Hardin’s Capitol office Wednesday evening. An email obtained by the station distributed to representatives, senators and legislative assistants said, “I believe in the power of prayer and think a time of corporate prayer is certainly warranted.”

One lawmaker who did not want to be named told KWTV they believed Hardin’s condition had made some progress and they continue to pray for him and his family.

Hardin represents Oklahoma House District 49, which includes parts of Carter, Love and Marshall counties.
