COVID-19 Update - January 24, 2022

COVID-19 Update January 24, 2022
 
Brethren,
 
The Provincial government has announced a lessening of restrictions starting on January 31. The announcement was very encouraging however few details are available yet. Meeting spaces will be allowed to open at 50% capacity. It appears that, unless food or drink is served in a meeting space, there will be no requirement to remain in one’s seat. I have contacted the Ministry to confirm this, which they did, however they also said there will be more clarifications and details in the coming week. The full regulation will be published January 31.
 
Therefore, if the members wish, lodges can plan to meet in-person in February following all the public health restrictions in effect at that time. However, they must check the provincial regulation and local rules before actually meeting. We will also send out an update.
 
Lodges not wishing to meet yet may continue with our previously announced adaptations.
