MCA EXPANDS TRAVEL RADIUS TO 160 KM/100 MILES
On August 24, 2020, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne amended the Akwesasne Emergency Curfew Law to expand the travel radius from 80 km/50 miles to 160 km/100 miles, excluding the city of Montreal. Only essential travel is permitted to Montreal due to their continued volume of COVID-19 cases.
Anyone travelling outside the newly expanded radius, or to Montreal, for any non-essential purpose is required to self-quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival or return to Akwesasne.
It is important for community members to continue practicing social distancing and prevention measures such as hand-washing, mask-wearing, and avoiding large crowds, whether travel is essential or non-essential.
Council has implemented the Akwesasne Emergency Curfew Law for the safety of the community and will continue to review and update the law when deemed appropriate or safe to do so.
We are all in this together; let’s continue to keep Akwesasne safe.
