COVID impacts on our Navajo Elders


The Navajo Nation was struck hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, with one of the highest per capita infection rates in the country earlier this year. Disparities in access to health care and infrastructure, high rates of chronic health conditions, and multigenerational homes increase the risk for virus spread and complications.Native elders depend on firewood for cooking and staying warm in the winter.
