WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — Navajo Nation health officials have reported four new confirmed cases of COVID-19 with one more additional death.
That brings the total number of people infected to 9,601 with the known death toll now at 499 as of Thursday.
Navajo Department of Health officials say 93,565 people have been tested for the coronavirus and 7,027 have recovered.
The Navajo Nation lifted its stay-at-home order on Aug. 16 but is asking residents to leave their homes only for emergencies or essential activities.
Much of the Navajo Nation has been closed since March as the coronavirus swept through the vast reservation that extends into New Mexico, Utah and Arizona.
