Private Gatherings Prohibited to Combat Spread of COVID-19
Written by Paul on October 7, 2020
In one of its most drastic moves since lifting the lockdown in Kahnawake in late spring, the COVID-19 Task Force has mandated that private gatherings in the community will be limited to just those who currently live under the same roof. In a press release Wednesday afternoon the Task Frse stated: “There is a significant increase or sustained level of community spread and maximum risk of transmission.” The new directive goes into effect at 11:59 pm this Friday.
“The current situation in Quebec shows the numbers are headed in the wrong direction,” said Lloyd Phillips, the Commissioner of Public Safety. “This was not any easy decision that will, once again, cause a great deal of stress for our people but we must remind Kahnawa’kehró:non of our mandate to protect our most vulnerable population and the community as a whole.”
For now pool services, home repairs and construction are still permitted.
