Tribe's EOC Reports Zero COVID-19 Cases: 16 Total Active

Mar 9, 2021

AKWESASNE — The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is reporting zero (0) new case of COVID-19 — making 16 total active cases under the Tribe’s jurisdiction. Nine (9) community members have been released from isolation or quarantine, while around thirty one (31) family members and friends remain in quarantine at home. Zero (0) additional relatives have been hospitalized — making one (1) community member who is in the hospital recovering from severe symptoms. We wish them and everyone who continues to be affected by the virus a safe, and complication-free recovery.

The EOC urges everyone to please continue showing compassion and kindness—to those who have been directly affected by COVID-19 and to all frontline workers. Whether you telephone the clinic, are in line for the pharmacy’s curbside pickup or to receive a COVID-19 test, we ask for your continued patience and understanding. Many of our healthcare workers and frontline personnel have been doing their very best to take care of your health, medical, and other needs since the beginning of the pandemic, so please be patient and respectful towards them.

The next vaccination clinic is available by appointment-only for enrolled tribal members (40-years old or more) living in Akwesasne’s southern portion. Those who have been diagnosed with diabetes are highly encouraged to call and schedule an appointment, as well as non-members who reside in an eligible person’s tribal household. To pre-register, please call (518) 333-0230. Do not assume you are scheduled until you talk to someone directly. (Individuals awaiting COVID-19 test results cannot receive the vaccine.)

Please help prevent any further spread of the virus by avoiding uncontrolled gatherings and following all the protective measures that were developed to keep us all safe: Wear your mask in public places. Stay at least six (6) feet apart from others. Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.

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.
