Masks Mandate Remains in Effect on Navajo Nation

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - The Navajo Nation is holding its ground on the issue of facial mask wearing. This, despite the new guidance released last Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that says fully vaccinated individuals can take their masks off while inside.

"Several states have lifted even more restrictions that helped to prevent more spread of Covid-19, but we are keeping the mask mandate and social distancing protocols in place on the Navajo Nation," Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said on Monday.

"As we've seen before, the virus is unpredictable at times so we have to be very careful and continue to urge our citizens to continue taking precautions to stay safe. This week, we have seven communities that are identified as having uncontrolled spread. We have to do better and keep pushing back on Covid-19 and that includes getting vaccinated. Please continue to practice social distancing, avoid large in-person gatherings, stay home as much as possible, get vaccinated, and wash your hands often," Nez continued.
