Hopi Tribe Remains Under Stay-At-Home Order For Public Safety

The Hopi Tribe remains under stay-at-home directives in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Tribal leaders say the Hopi-Tewa community will continue to abide by the tribe's order while the rest of Arizona reopens businesses, starts moving around again, and navigates a newly imposed evening curfew related to nationwide protests against police brutality toward black people. Tribal officials say the coronavirus continues to pose a serious threat to public safety, and a stay-at-home order will remain in effect until further notice. The Hopi Health Care Center has tested nearly 1,300 people to date for COVID-19. Nearly 100 tests have come back positive, 40 of those patients are Hopi tribal members.
