WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – On Saturday, the Navajo Department of Health, in coordination with the Navajo Epidemiology Center and the NavajoArea Indian Health Service, reported 13 new COVID-19 positive cases for the Navajo Nation and no recent deaths. The total number of deaths is now 1,358 as previously reported. A full report will be available on Monday.

On Saturday, the state of Arizona reported 807 new cases, Utah has yet to report its cases, and New Mexico will report its weekend cases on Monday. 

“The Delta variant has created surges in COVID-19 infections in several states including Utah and Arizona. We are not out of this pandemic, but our public health experts have given us the necessary guidance to keep ourselves safe including getting vaccinated and continuing to wear a mask in public. If you travel off the Navajo Nation, wear a mask in public. We have to continue to be very cautious and push back on this virus,” said NavajoNation 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. 

“While many of our people are enjoying the weekend, our health care workers and first responders continue to fight for us. So, let’s fight for them by continuing to take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the Delta variant. Please be safe and keep praying for our people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
