WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – On Sunday, the Navajo Department of Health, in coordination with the Navajo Epidemiology Center and the Navajo Area Indian Health Service, reported two new COVID-19 positive cases for the Navajo Nation and no recent deaths. The total number of deaths is now 1,324 as of Sunday. The full report for Sunday is not available due to the holiday weekend.

“Stay safe and keep taking precautions during this holiday weekend as we honor and remember our fallen warriors on Memorial Day. We have to remain diligent in order to keep our daily numbers of new infections low. Please keep wearing masks in public and make good decisions for yourselves and others. We are overcoming the pandemic, but we have to do everything we can to keep pushing back on COVID-19 and the variation,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.

Health care facilities across the Navajo Nation continue to administer COVID-19 vaccines during drive-thru events or by appointment. If you would like to receive the vaccine, please contact your health care provider for more information for your Service Unit. 

“A big thank you to all of our health care workers and first responders who continue to work through the holiday weekend to help our people and to save lives. We are in this together so please be safe and continue to pray for our communities and our people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
