Navajo Nation Council

Navajo Nation health officials have reported 103 new known cases of COVID-19 and four more deaths.

The tribe has extended its stay-at-home order with a revised nightly curfew to limit the spread of the virus. The Navajo Department of Health says there are 56 communities with uncontrolled spread of COVID, down from 75 in recent weeks.

The Navajo Nation has lifted weekend lockdowns to allow more vaccination events. Yesterday the tribe administered about a thousand COVID vaccines in Fort Defiance and another thousand on Saturday to elders Gallup.

In all, 28,325 residents of the Navajo Nation have tested positive for COVID and more than 1,000 have died.
