Navajo Nation issues cease and desist order to company administering unauthorized COVID-19 tests, as new questions arise over the secret negotiations to purchase Remington Arms

WINDOW ROCK, Arizona -- The Navajo Nation sent the following cease and desist order to Agile Technologies, which is administering unauthorized types of coronavirus tests to Navajos.
Navajo Attorney General Doreen McPaul states a sole source contract from the Navajo Nation was unauthorized and has expired.
Agile Technologies is not a health care provider, but has continued to operate illegally on the Navajo Nation, after the unauthorized contract expired on Dec. 30, 2020.
Agile is administering rapid antigen and antibody tests, which are not approved by the CDC.
Agile has rented space at the Navajo Shopping Center and has continued to administer these unauthorized COVID-19 tests. It is misleading the public into believing it is operating on behalf of the Navajo Nation, according to the cease and desist order.
