A total of 586 people have lost their lives to the coronavirus.
“We are in the midst of a growing surge of COVID-19 cases. This virus knows no boundaries and the infection rate is high in many areas on the Navajo Nation in the entire states of New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez. “I cannot emphasize enough that the safest place to be is at home here on the Navajo Nation. We have to do better and we have to stay strong and keep pushing forward while keeping our guard up.”

Vice President Myron Lizer said, “We do not want our numbers related to COVID-19 to surpass the numbers we had back in April and May. Too many families are grieving and too many of our Navajo people are suffering from this virus. Please be safe and make good choices for yourselves and others every day. Continue to pray for our people and our Nation.”
The Nez-Lizer administration will host an online town hall on Facebook on Thursday, November 5 at 6 p.m.
