Navajo Nation Special Session Cancelled Due To Virus Concern


The Navajo Nation Council session scheduled for Friday has been cancelled so all of the Legislative Branch buildings can be disinfected and sanitized.

Council Speaker Seth Damon announced Thursday night the move was made “out of an abundance of caution” due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Under Legislative Branch protocol, the first instance of a symptomatic report will automatically result in a further closure of program offices.

The Legislative Branch is comprised of 13 programs that have been operating on extremely limited office staff since March.

Damon says work will continue to move forward under expanded remote work plans with each of the programs.
