Please be advised that a young community member, who was asymptomatic but positive for COVID-19, apparently attended a large gathering on Brant Reservation Road this past Halloween weekend. If you or a family member may have been exposed, please call the clinic to arrange for testing. Affected individuals should self-quarantine, contact their doctor, and follow all medical directives. The Seneca Nation is working on obtaining additional testing opportunities as quickly as possible. Details will be announced as soon as they are available.
