Utah Lieutenant Governor Candidate Helps Navajo Nation Suffering From Corona Outbreak


Utah Lieutenant Governor Candidate Karin Brown spent the Memorial Day providing social assistance for the Navajo Nation members, whose community has been heavily impacted by COVID-19.

Brown and a group of volunteers arrived at Montezuma Creek where Navajo Nation Government Offices are located, delivering packages with groceries, emergency items, and protective supplies. The Native American Navajo Nation has so far suffered the largest COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. As of May 19th the total number of infected nation members was more than 4,000 out of 173,667. The community, 38% of which lives in poverty, has had to set up a daily curfew and 57-hour shelter-in-place measures in attempts to stop the spread.

Right now, a caravan loaded with aid packages is sent to Montezuma Creek every weekend, as part of the initiative by Cheryl Butler, a Democratic candidate for the Utah House of Representatives.
