Elijah spent a short time in this position when his role changed to taking a part of the Navajo Health Command Operations Center's Strike Team. As a strike team member, a person offers his/her assistance in making life easily manageable for those at high risk for COVID-19 and for those who are positive and isolated. The mission of each member is to provide services to keep all of the Navajo residents safe.
"What keeps me motivated is knowing that my team is delivering to the high risk, elderly, and COVID-19 patients and letting them know that we are there to help them during these hard times. No one should overcome this battle alone, and we need to be there for one another."
On a typical day, Elijah delivers dry food boxes of food, water hygiene kits, and cleaning supplies to community members within the Tuba City service area. He also provides public education and prevention tips to combat COVID-19.
