MCA REPORTS ONE NEW POSITIVE CASE OF COVID-19
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Community Health Program reports that there is one new case of COVID-19 in the northern portion of the community as of Dec. 16, 2020. This brings the total active cases in MCA’s jurisdiction to two (2), with 39 cases overall since the beginning of the pandemic. Thirty-seven (37) cases have been resolved.
MCA’s limit on indoor social gatherings remains at 10 for indoor gatherings, and the community curfew remains in place from 11 a.m. to 5 a.m. Please consider alternative, safe holiday celebrations in order to prevent further spread of COVID-19 and to keep yourself, your family and the community safe.
We wish to thank and recognize the community for their continued ongoing diligence in practicing preventative measures especially the difficult task of social distancing from our friends and family. We will get through this together.
