Visiting places with a positive case does not mean you have COVID-19


The Kahnaw�:ke COVID-19 Task Force is reminding the community that if you have visited a location where there were COVID-19 positive or suspect cases, it does not necessarily mean you have contracted the virus. Nor does it mean you need to self-isolate or stay home from work.

The Task Force has been receiving calls from concerned community members on these issues and would like to remind the community that having the COVID-19 virus will typically result in symptoms. 

The Testing Site is currently only testing people with symptoms unless they have been directed by Public Health to be screened. If you have symptoms, you should stay home, get tested, and self-isolate.

If you believe you have been in close contact (10+ minutes, within 6 feet) of a person who is COVID-19 positive, you should self-isolate for 14 days, and if you develop symptoms, get tested. If Public Health has determined that you are a high-risk contact, you will be called as part of contact tracing.

If you are not sure and think you may have come into contact with a positive case, you can protect your loved ones and co-workers by wearing a mask, staying more than 6 feet apart from people, and following proper hygiene protocols. Monitor yourself for symptoms. You can work and can continue your regular routine.
