A Community's Response: How one Arizona tribe battled COVID-19

The White Mountain Apache Tribe in eastern Arizona was able to slow the spread of Covid in the community by implementing a daily routine of "contact tracing, surveillance of high-risk individuals, and vaccinations." Since starting the regimen – which includes going door-to-door to community members' houses to monitor potential exposures, symptoms, and to offer vaccines – the tribe has curbed the spread and hasn't reported any more deaths in months.
