Stay-At-Home Order Reinstated for Navajo Nation Residents

President Nez vetoes resolution that would have reopened Navajo Nation roads to visitors & tourists


April 12, 2021

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - The Navajo Nation has reinstated the "Stay-At-Home" order due to an increase of Covid-19 cases.

Two weeks ago, there was one day with zero reported cases. On Friday, there were 26 reported new Covid-19 cases.

"The data indicates that residents are traveling more and more and holding in-person family gatherings. We have to do better and respect the words and advice of our public health experts. Think of all the sacrifices that our frontline warriors have made for us all. They come into contact with Covid-19 positive individuals and fight for their lives every day. So, before you decide to travel or hold an in-person gathering, think about the risks and think about our health care workers and the risks they are taking for us each day. Stay home as much as possible, wear a mask, practice social distancing, avoid large in-person gatherings, and wash your hands often," Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said on Friday.
