Earlier today, we learned the California Department of Public Health will issue new guidance for indoor social gatherings such as our meetings and events. The new guidance will allow indoor, private gatherings based upon the level of restrictions in place in each county, and it will provide guidance for who can attend and how many can attend.
Next week, I will issue a new directive with details as they pertain to our lodges, Masonic Organizations, and Youth Orders, including procedures for returning to in-person meetings and events.
This is a good step forward in returning to in-person Masonic meetings and activities. In the meantime, my October 19, 2020 directives remain in force. You may read them online at freemason.org. I look forward to sharing more next week.
Sincerely and fraternally,
