Arizona's COVID-19 case update, Monday, November 22nd, 2021

State health officials on Sunday reported more than 3,600 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases and one additional death.

The Arizona Department of Health Services’ coronavirus dashboard had reported 56 deaths on Thursday, 78 deaths on Friday and 53 deaths on Saturday. Public health officials are urging people to take precautions against the virus during the upcoming holiday season.

Since last month, most of Arizona’s daily case reports ranged between 2,000 and 4,000 with a few larger reports attributed to data glitches that lowered reports on previous days.

The Navajo Nation Saturday reported 87 newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 and four additional deaths.

Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez visited the Pinon Health Center vaccination site this weekend to show his support for health care workers and families receiving the vaccines.

The President and First Lady received their booster doses and their 6-year-old son also received his first vaccine dose at the event. The tribe has maintained a mask mandate through most of the pandemic.
