As New York Governor Lifts Mask Mandate, Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe Still Requires Masks
February 11, 2022
On Wednesday, the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe responded to New York State Governor Kathy Hochul's announcement earlier in the day to end the state's mask mandate for indoor public spaces.
Despite the New York governor's action, citing its tribal sovereignty, the Mohawk Tribe still requires mask wearing as a protective measure to safeguard public health against COVID-19.
Per Gov. Hochul, New York's mask mandate ends on Thursday, though a federal mandate remains in effect for all forms of public transportation, including transportation hubs, such as bus and subway hubs and airports.
