As his first official communication as Governor General, MPD W. Berry Rigdon reminded us that all York Rite Sovereign College in-person meetings are suspended until the following are applied:
1) The directives have been removed by your local State/Provincial Governor/Premier or Presidents.
2) The Grand Master of your Grand Lodge has cleared your jurisdiction to hold open meetings. And Grand Masters & Grand Lodges permit degree conferrals.
Once you are cleared, please use the guidelines for meeting safety such as:
1) Hand sanitzer available when entering the meeting
2) Social distancing
He went on to say that this plan of action will be reviewed in January 2021 to ascertain if other actions need to be taken.
In closing he asked that everyone, please stay safe.
