President Nez: Navajo Nation Weekend Curfews Will Likely Continue Until Vaccine Available
Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said partial 32-hour weekend curfews will continue this month.
The curfews are in effect from Saturday at 9 p.m. to Monday at 5 a.m.
Nez said until there is a vaccine, these lockdowns will likely continue. He also cautioned those who have said they will not get inoculated when one becomes available.
“If we’re not going to vaccines then you probably need to start getting used to wearing a mask, social distancing, washing your hands and staying home," said Nez.
On Monday, the tribe reported just five new coronavirus cases and no new deaths.
