Updated Public Health Measures as of August 5th 2021


The Kateri Memorial Hospital Centre Public Health Department and the Public Safety Commission wish to update the community on the changes made to the Public Health Measures as per Directive #65 under the Kahnawake emergency Preparedness Law.

The complete and revised Directive can be viewed  by clicking this link  

See below for some of the measures that are in effect as of today:

  • Runny nose and/or congestion is no longer considered a primary COVID-19 symptom; therefore, testing is not required if a runny nose and/or congestion is your only symptom.
  • All Kahnawake businesses that host their clients, such as restaurants, bars, social clubs, and EDC organizations, MUST maintain a registry of people who enter and leave the premises. Public Health requires the first and last name of each individual, their phone number, and the time of entry and departure.
  • Masking is not required while outdoors, whether in a private or public setting, such as a park, playground, ball field, or small family gathering if fully vaccinated. If partially vaccinated or not vaccinated, wearing a mask is required when a 2-meter distance cannot be maintained.
  • Masking is once again required for all Kahnawake businesses and EDC Organizations in all indoor common areas (example: conference rooms and shared office spaces), regardless of the ability to maintain distancing.

The Public Safety Commission and Public Health want to emphasize that although we are on a GREEN level alert, this does not mean the pandemic is over. We must remain vigilant and follow public health measures as a means to prevent any outbreaks and keep us on the right path forward.
