“The number of cases has been decreasing on the Navajo Nation for several weeks, and we commend all Navajo residents for staying alert, prepared, and safe,” Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said. “The invisible monster, called the coronavirus, has entered our homelands for several months, but we can fight it off our lands by practicing all preventative measures.”
The Navajo Nation has had 55 consecutive days with less than 100 reported daily cases of COVID-19.
