“The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke is taking seriously its responsibility as a governing body to take all measures to secure the health and safety of all Kahnawa’kehró:non,” said Grand Chief Joseph Tokwiro Norton.”

This mandate is effective immediately, will remain in place for 30 days, and is subject to extension, if necessary.
