from the Haps....The Trustees held a special meeting on 5/29/20 and decided that due to the questionable liability coverage from our insurance carrier and for your protection - the Lodge building, with their regrets, must be locked.
The Lodge building, at the direction of our Trustees, is locked. Your key card, both old and new will not work. Special arrangements have been made for Secretary, Treasurer, Apartment Mgr and Exalted Ruler.
If you feel access to the building is necessary, please email the Secretary@grassvalleyelks.org
This temporary action was deemed necessary, due to residual impacts from Covid19, non-specific information from Nevada County, State and Federal and a message from Vance DeWitt, DDGER who believes our Lodge liability insurance coverage may be void if an accident occurs at the Lodge involving a "non essential" worker/volunteer, and IF we are out of compliance with Nevada County's "Covid19-Resilience Guidance".
The Trustees are seeking answers from the Grand Lodge, the County as well as other California counties who, we've been told have opened with the blessing from their local County officials and they are in the same "Stage" of reopening.
Nevada County is processing rapidly thru Stage 2 and has begun opening businesses in Stage 3. Our Lodge will re-open as soon as clarification on rules for "private member clubs," and their facilities, is received and we are permitted to do so.
All of us are anxious for re-opening but want you and your Lodge to remain safe and in compliance. Your understanding is appreciated.
