Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe
The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is reporting four (4) new cases of COVID-19 yesterday, which makes 10 total active cases under the Tribe’s jurisdiction. We are pleased that nine of our relatives have resolved over the weekend however, 64 of our family and friends remain in quarantine. We ask that you extend kindness and understanding to anyone who has been impacted by COVID-19. We will get through this together.
The slight decrease in total active cases is improvement, but the number of community members in quarantine indicates that direct exposures are still taking place. As a result, we are urging individuals to please limit direct contact with those who not reside in your immediate household. With the upcoming Super Bowl and St. Patrick’s Day, we urge everyone to avoid uncontrolled events and private gatherings where no safety measures are being practiced.
The COVID-19 community drive-thru test collection clinic scheduled for tomorrow, February 2nd has been cancelled due to expected winter weather conditions. More drive-thru clinics will be held each Tuesday for this month at the former-IGA Building beginning at 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., or while test supplies last.
