MCA ANNOUNCES COMMUNITY DISTRIBUTION OF COVID-19 RAPID TESTS
Due to the sudden rise in COVID-19 cases, and with the emergence of the Omicron variant, it is important for people to recognize when they are displaying symptoms, and be able to test themselves for COVID-19.
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne will be distributing rapid antigen tests in the three districts for community members. Currently, supply is limited, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Rapid tests will be given out via drive-thru service at the district recreation center parking lots and is limited to two (2) per vehicle. We are asking community members to please stay in their vehicles when arriving, and have a mask on when receiving the rapid tests.
The distribution date for the rapid tests has been set for Friday, January 7, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. – 2 p.m., or until all tests have been distributed.
