WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – Navajo Nation officials reported 11 new COVID-19 cases and no deaths in their latest pandemic update.
In all, the coronavirus has killed 559 people and infected 10,454 individuals on the reservation.
“You’re a warrior if you wear a mask because you’re helping to save lives and to protect our children and elders, said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez. “The Navajo people did a good job in bringing our numbers down by following the CDC guidelines and public health orders from the Navajo Department of Health and we can do it again.”

Tribal leaders also encouraged residents to make sure they take part in the 2020 Census before the October 31 deadline.
“Despite the setbacks and challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is very important for all of our Navajo citizens to get counted for the 2020 Census,” said Vice President Myron Lizer. “At the start of the pandemic, COVID-19 devastated our health care system. By self-responding for the census, you can help our Nation receive additional funds and resources to help our health care facilities.”
