WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — Navajo Nation health officials report 17 additional cases of coronavirus with one additional death. That put the number of positive COVID-19 cases on the reservation at 7,549 as of Tuesday night with the known death toll at 364.
Reports from a dozen health care facilities on and near the Navajo Nation indicate some 5,218 have recovered and at least 55,626 people have been tested so far.
Navajo Nation officials have extended the closure of tribal government offices and ordered residents to stay home for another three weeks as the number of coronavirus cases rises outside the reservation.
The restrictions had been set to expire on July 5. They are now in place until July 26 and include three more weekend lockdowns.
