MCA REINSTATING MASK REQUIREMENT IN ALL BUILDINGS
In an act of caution and care for the health of the community, and due to the rising cases of COVID-19 during this “7th wave” in Ontario, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is reinstating the mask requirement in all MCA buildings, effective immediately.
Please be prepared to wear a mask when visiting any MCA facility. Other preventative measures (physical distancing, regular hand-sanitizing, etc.) continue to be encouraged. “Active screenings” will be required in our long-term care and educational facilities. Other buildings will require “passive screening” meaning the individual self-monitors and determines if they are safe to enter the building.
We ask that anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 stay home and test using a Rapid Antigen Test, which are available for free at the Community Health Program.
Measures continue to be in place with the best interest of the community in mind. Let’s all do our part to protect one another and our most vulnerable community members.
If you require any further information, or to report your positive COVID-19 test results, please contact Community Health at 613-575-2250 ext. 3220.
