WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — Navajo Nation health officials report 32 new confirmed cases of the coronavirus, but no additional deaths.

The latest figures released Saturday night bring the total number of cases to 10,269 with the known death toll at 552.

Tribal officials said 104,746 people have been tested on the vast reservation that covers parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah and 72,250 have recovered from COVID-19.

The Navajo Nation has implemented a stricter weekend lockdown as it looks into new clusters of coronavirus cases from family gatherings and off-reservation travel.

Residents now are being required to stay home from Friday evening until early Monday morning. More recent weekend lockdowns were a day shorter.
