WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — The Navajo Nation on Thursday reported six new confirmed COVID-19 cases and three additional deaths.

Tribal health officials say the total number of cases since the pandemic began more than a year ago now is 30,491 on the vast reservation that covers parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah with 1,276 known deaths.

Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez says more than half of the reservation’s adult population has been vaccinated.

But people still need to stay home as much as possible, wear masks and avoid large gatherings.
