Navajo Nation - Office of the President and Vice President
On Tuesday, the Navajo Department of Health, in coordination with the Navajo Epidemiology Center and the Navajo Area Indian Health Service, reported zero new COVID-19 positive cases for the Navajo Nation and no recent deaths. The total number of deaths remains 1,322 as previously reported. A full report will be available on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the state of Arizona reported four new cases due to holiday delay, Utah reported 112, and New Mexico reported 381 cases over the last four days combined.
“We are seeing good progress, but there is likely a delay in reporting new cases due to the holiday weekend. I thank all of our health care workers and frontline warriors for working through the Memorial Day weekend to keep our people safe. Please continue to take all precautions including wearing a mask in public. We are optimistic and hopeful that our people were careful during the holiday weekend and took all precautions to stay safe. Please remain diligent and keep pushing back on the virus by getting vaccinated,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.
Health care facilities across the Navajo Nation continue to administer COVID-19 vaccines during drive-thru events or by appointment. If you would like to receive the vaccine, please contact your health care provider for more information for your Service Unit.
“On Navajo Nation Treaty Day, we remember all of our ancestors and past leaders who overcame many challenges and adversities so that we could be here today. Please honor them by continuing to fight back against COVID-19 by continuing to take all precautions and get vaccinated. Be safe and keep praying for our people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
