The consequences of the coronavirus and slowing its spread.
Governments on all levels have closed businesses and institutions, including our lodges.
Our "highest priority is the health and well-being of our members, volunteers, guests, and staff."
The GER has said, "Our lodges have been closed and our activities have been suspended."
The DD has informed us that that our AON insurance does not cover us when engaged in unauthorized activities.
Lodges have lost their ABC licenses and/or charters for violations during this lockdown.
This list of reasons could go on.
The Trustees are just as eager to re-open our lodge as every other member. We are awaiting guidelines from the county government, Grand Lodge, and the CDC. However, we must abide by the most stringent criteria. We have lost almost 1/4 of our Elk year. Re-opening will not be a simple task, because it must be done properly. Hopefully, it will be accomplished sooner rather than later.
Until we meet again, stay healthy and safe, and remember the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherhood, and Fidelity.
