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.

“Keep your guard at all times wherever you may go. We must remain diligent and remind ourselves that we are not completely out of this pandemic. We have variants throughout the world and in our own communities here on the Navajo Nation that still pose risks. Continue to wear your masks in public and take precautions to remain safe and healthy. We are in this together and we will overcome,” 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. 

“Our health care workers and first responders continue fighting for us each and every day, so let’s continue to help them by taking precautions to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. We have a lot to be thankful for, so please remain optimistic and keep supporting one another. Be safe and pray for our frontline workers and all of our people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
