Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation reconfirms mask mandate

TUBA CITY, Ariz –Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation (TCRHCC) is reconfirming its mask mandate at all TCRHCC health care locations across the Western region of the Navajo, Hopi, and San Juan-Paiute reservations. “Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation will continue to have staff, patients and visitors wear masks at all our facilities and clinics,” announced CEO Joette Walters.

On Friday May 5th Navajo Nation President Buu Nygren announced a lifting of the mask mandate across the Nation, but that “health care facilities, nursing homes, and schools can do so under their own guidelines.”

Health care facilities regularly see patients with possible COVID symptoms. Masks help prevent all respiratory viruses -- not just COVID -- and help keep healthcare workers and patients healthy and safe.

COVID vaccinations and testing are still available at the TCRHCC drive-up vaccine clinic near the entrance of the TCRHCC campus from Monday to Friday 8-11:30 AM and 12:30-4 PM.

Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation is a Joint Commission accredited 73-bed health center that provides services to a 6,000 square mile area and serves as a referral center for the western region of the Navajo. Hopi, and San Juan-Paiute Reservations. TRCHCC is a P.L. 93-638 health care facility and operates the Sacred Peaks Clinic in Flagstaff, Ariz. and LeChee Healthy Facility near Page, Ariz.
