Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Julian’s role has changed quite a bit, from providing public health presentations and educational activities with groups of people, to not having them at all. He now works on a designated Strike Team, assisting in all responses to COVID-19, which requires delivering essential supplies to high-risk and COVID-19 positive patients within the Shiprock Service area, and distributing COVID-19 in public areas.
What keeps Julian motivated is, knowing that with each piece of information he posts and shares, with every delivery of supplies he gives to families in need, he is doing his part in flattening the curve on the Navajo Nation. Community members feel fortunate during this time of need that they are not forgotten. They appreciate that the strike team takes the time to deliver essential items, no matter their location or their circumstances. They are a resilient people.
