On Friday, the Navajo Ministry of Health lifted the country’s stay-at-home order and relaxed restrictions allowing face-to-face meetings and ceremonies of up to 25 people and drive-through rallies for up to 100 vehicles.
A face mask is required for everyone, whether or not they are vaccinated against COVID-19.
Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez and Vice President Myron Lizer rejected a resolution on Friday to reopen parks nationwide, including parks including Monument Valley and Antelope Canyon, at 100% capacity.
In a letter to the Navajo Nation Council, Nez and Riser said the country needs to be aware of variants of the disease that are still prevalent.
They said that by opening the park to 50% capacity instead of opening it to full capacity, authorities could monitor the impact of the reopening and gradually increase capacity from there.
