The Navajo Nation has issued a Health Advisory Notice warning of the “uncontrolled spread” of coronavirus in some communities. The notice was put out Wednesday morning from Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez and Vice President Myron Lizer. More than two dozen communities were included in the advisory. “The uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 means that people who are testing positive in these areas likely do not know where or how they contracted the virus. We are back to the point of community spread in certain parts of the Navajo Nation. We strongly urge everyone to take precautions and to keep their guard up. Stay home as much as possible, always wear a mask in public, practice social distancing, avoid large crowds including family gatherings, and wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer in public,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.
