DOH REMINDS COMMUNITY TO CONTINUE FOLLOWING PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDELINES
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne has rescinded the Emergency Curfew Law, effective as of June 3, 2021. With the rescinding of the law, the curfew hours, travel radius, and quarantine requirement after travel are being dissolved.
The MCA Department of Health is reminding the community that even if you are fully vaccinated, in order to keep our entire community safe, you must continue to follow public health guidelines. Please continue to wear a mask when in public, practicing social distancing of at least 6-feet, stay home and quarantine if you’re sick, and respect the gathering limits. Should you become sick and exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, begin your isolation period and contact the Community Health Program for advisement, and continue to follow their guidance until cleared from isolation by a health professional.
If you are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, the Community Health Program has the following vaccine clinics scheduled:
June 16, 2021: Pfizer – still accepting appointments, 12 years of age and up
June 23, 2021: Moderna – still accepting appointments, adults 18+
Vaccine clinics are by appointment only. No walk-ins are scheduled at this time.
If you need more information about the public health guidelines, or to register for one of the upcoming vaccine clinics, please contact the Community Health Program at 613-575-2341.
