May 25, 2021

AKWESASNE — The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Emergency Operations Center is reporting no new cases of COVID-19 however, one (1) active case remains in the southern portion of Akwesasne. There also remains three (3) family members and friends in quarantine following guidance from public health. We wish them and all individuals who have been impacted by COVID-19 a safe, symptom-free recovery.

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer Vaccine for adolescents 12 through 15 years of age. Given this development, Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services is asking interested parents to please sign up their child by calling (518) 333-0230. Leave your name and good telephone number for a healthcare worker to call you back. Please keep in mind that a parent must be present for the appointment.


The Emergency Operations Center is reminding community members and guests that despite NYS and the CDC easing its guidance; masks must still be worn where they are required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulation. As a result, individuals are still required to properly wear a mask in all public places within the Tribe’s jurisdiction, including at local businesses and workplaces.

The EOC notes that until more people get vaccinated for COVID-19, it is still extremely important to maintain safety measures to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. These precautions include wearing a face mask, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands frequently with soap and water or using hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
