In order to protect each other, staff and community members, from COVID-19, there are measures in place at Mohawk Council of Akwesasne buildings. These procedures include:
• A temperature check. A temperature of 100.0 °F or higher is considered a fever and you may not enter our buildings. A temperature lower than 100.0 is not considered a fever. Please note this temperature was recently reduced from the previous guidelines of 100.4.
• A health screening. If you answer yes to any of the questions about travel, symptoms, or exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19, you may not enter.
• COVID-19 testing screening question: You will be asked if you or anyone in your household are awaiting test results for COVID-19. If yes, you may not enter.
• Wearing of a mask at all times in public spaces, unless the program you are visiting has arrangements for six feet of distance. Masks must be worn by anyone moving about the buildings. Staff may be permitted to remove masks when seated/working at their own workspace/office/desk only.
