Emergency Measures Remain in Effect for Akwesasne
May 27, 2020
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA) and the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (SRMT) held a conference call on May 26, 2020 to discuss concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. At this time, we are reminding individuals that Akwesasne remains under a State of Emergency and all emergency measures taken continue to be in effect.
Community members are asked to continue adhering to all the preventive and protective measures authorized by our respective Councils including, but not limited to, the following:
- A community curfew is in place from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. throughout Akwesasne. Community members are required to stay home and off the roads during these hours.
- It is recommended that community members remain within a 50-mile/80-kilometer radius of Akwesasne. Community members who travel outside this radius are required to quarantine (if they have no symptoms) or isolate (if they have or develop symptoms) for 14 days upon their return. For the safety of our entire community, it is best that you not travel outside the 50-mile/80-kilometer radius during the State of Emergency.
Both MCA and SRMT indicate that the State of Emergency will continue until COVID-19 no longer poses a threat to the health, safety, and welfare of our community. For any COVID-19 related emergency matter, please call your respective Emergency Operations Center (EOC) from Monday-Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m.to 5:00 p.m. by phone: MCA’s EOC (613) 575-5005 or (613) 575-2331 or SRMT’s EOC (518) 320-0019.
