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 10 new COVID-19 positive cases for the Navajo Nation and no recent deaths. The total number of deaths remains 1,377 as previously reported.

On Sunday, the state of Arizona reported 2,306 new cases. The states of Utah and New Mexico will report their weekend case numbers on Monday. 

“Daily case numbers continue to rise for the state of Arizona and other surrounding areas. Please wear a mask at all times in public and get fully vaccinated if you haven’t already. We are in this together and we have to do everything we can to protect ourselves and one another. Across the country, the large majority of new infections and deaths involve people who are not vaccinated for COVID-19. So, please take precautions and continue to pray for our people,” 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. 

“Personal responsibility is key to reducing the spread of COVID-19. Our health experts have provided us with the guidance and resources to protect ourselves. Please be safe and keep praying for our frontline workers and all of our communities,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
