The Navajo Nation has extended its weekend lockdowns preventing people from leaving their homes, except in emergencies, on the vast expanse of land that has been harder hit by the coronavirus than any other Native American reservation in the U.S.

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - The Navajo Nation is ordering all people on the tribe's vast reservation to wear protective masks when out in public to help fight the spread of the coronavirus.

The Navajo Department of Health issued the emergency health order for the reservation, which includes parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
