WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – On Monday, the Navajo Department of Health, in coordination with the Navajo Epidemiology Center and the Navajo Area Indian Health Service, reported 11 more COVID-19 positive cases for the Navajo Nation – four new cases on Sunday and seven new cases on Monday. One more death was also reported on Sunday. The total number of deaths is now 1,357. Reporting of new COVID-19 cases and deaths were not reported on July 4, due to the holiday.

On Monday, the state of Arizona reported 50 new cases. The states of Utah and New Mexico will report COVID-19 case numbers after the holiday weekend. 

“We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. Please be safe and continue to take precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and the Delta variant. We are still in the midst of this pandemic, so keep your guard up and don’t let up. Vaccines are the key to overcoming this virus and our goal is to reach community immunity. Be safe and continue to pray for all of our men and women on the frontlines,” 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. 

“Community immunity is within reach, but we need more people to get fully vaccinated to reach that goal. We are in this together, so please take precautions to keep yourselves and others safe and healthy. Thank you to all of our frontline workers and health care workers who are working hard through this holiday weekend. Please continue to pray for them and all of our people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
