Navajo Nation Leaders Re-Issue Stay-At-Home Order
Navajo Nation leaders have re-issued a stay-at-home order to help slow the spread of coronavirus.
The order requires all residents to limit movement inside and outside of their communities and only leave their residences for essential activities. A nightly curfew also remains in place on the reservation along with public mask requirements and other restrictions.
In addition, another 57-hour curfew will also be in effect this weekend on the Navajo Nation. The tribe reported 74 new cases of COVID-19 Monday and no recent deaths from the virus. The tribe has tested nearly 60,000 people, which is almost 35% of the reservation’s population.
Leaders also say more than 5,600 people have recovered from COVID-19. They've confirmed more than 7,900 known infections since the pandemic began and 378 deaths.
