The Kahnawà:ke COVID-19 Task Force is allowing for new guidelines for outdoor recreational activities and outdoor gatherings intended to promote mental health through safe and responsible outdoor activities. The Task Force is directing that a maximum of four (4) individuals from four different households participate in activities (example: four friends playing hockey). Additionally, a maximum of two households can participate together for outdoor activities.
In all instances COVID-19 safety measures of masks, hygiene, and distance should be respected at all times.
Activities that will be permitted include: Outdoor and private rinks; Sliding at the golf course; and Snowshoeing, walks and cross-country skiing. In addition, the skating surface at Onake will be open and maintained until the end of February by the Kahnawà:ke Youth Center.
The Task Force is also reminding the community that when indoors, a maximum of two households only can gather while respecting distance, hygiene and mask-wearing.
