WINDOW ROCK, ARIZ. — The Navajo Nation on Monday reported 6 additional COVID-19 cases and no deaths.

The U.S.'s largest Native American territory has seen 33,240 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 1,419 virus deaths since the pandemic began.

Navajo officials are urging people to get vaccinated, wear masks while in public and minimize their travel.
