COVID-19 CASES RISING AMONGST YOUNG ADULTS ACROSS ONTARIO
Across Ontario, a new trend is occurring: while cases of COVID-19 overall are lowering, there is an increase of cases in young adults aged 18-34.
Please be mindful that although the weather is nice, individuals must maintain social distancing even when outside with others. It is recommended that you do not gather with more than 10 individuals and to maintain physical distance (2 metres or 6 feet away) from others. It is also recommended to wear a facial covering whenever possible, to protect yourself and others.
In any situation, please consider the health of our community members, particularly the vulnerable and elderly, whenever you are in groups. Although individuals can be asymptomatic, the virus can be passed on to others and could cause a spread within the community.
If you have any questions or concerns about COVID-19, please contact the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne: Community Health Program at 613-575-2341 ext. 3220.
