COVID-19 PCR TEST COLLECTION CLINICS

Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services is conducting COVID-19 PCR Test Collection Clinics daily from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at their main campus located at 404 State Route. Please utilize the new road located across from McGee Road. The drive-thru format is open for all community members and employees of SRMT, Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, Akwesasne businesses, and local school districts. Individuals should only get tested if they are exhibiting symptoms, haven’t been compliant with safety protocols, or no sooner than seven (7) days following a suspected exposure to a positive case. Some early symptoms are diarrhea, fever, cough, tiredness, or possible loss of taste or smell.

Indoor Mask Requirement Remains in Effect

Regardless of vaccination status, individuals are still required to wear a mask in all public indoor places within the Tribe’s jurisdiction, including at local businesses and workplaces. Until more community members get vaccinated, people are still required to wear masks when social distancing is not possible, as it is an important safety measure to help prevent the spread of the virus, particularly to those who cannot get vaccinated due to a health condition or age.

If you have a non-emergency matter, please call the Emergency Operations Center at (518) 320-0019; Monday-Friday, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
