Read More News at >>

The Navajo Nation is asking non-residents to not visit the reservation for now. Navajo President Jonathan Nez announced efforts to limit the number of outside visitors onto tribal land because of the coronavirus pandemic. Nez said in a statement they don’t have the manpower to put roadblocks up, so they are respectfully asking visitors to “respect the sovereignty of the Navajo Nation” and visit some other time. The announcement comes after two members of the Navajo Nation tested positive this week for COVID-19 near Kayenta. The tribe has closed tourism locations and casinos to deal with the coronavirus. Nez is also asking members to stay home until it’s safer to travel. The Navajo Nation covers parts of Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.
