Navajo Nation Enters Three Week Lockdown [VIDEO]

Phoenix’s ABC News reports:

The Navajo Nation has begun a three-week lockdown for its citizens to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. “This virus takes off like wildfire,” said Navajo Nation President Johnathan Nez regarding a recent spike of COVID-19 cases across his constituents. “I think we just let down. There’s COVID fatigue here on Navajo as well.”

The lockdown includes keeping visitors out, and business hours have been restricted from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. “People are going to be mandated to stay home,” said Nez. “One person out of the family should be going to the supermarket to get essentials.”
