With immediate effect Lodges are free to meet and carry out ceremonies as long as they do so within the current government regulations regarding the Protection Framework (Traffic Light System).
If a Lodge permits a Brother who is not in possession of a valid vaccination certificate to attend a meeting, all members and visitors must be informed of this.
Let us hope that we can now return to some form of normality in our Lodges. Please bear in mind that attendance at Lodge meetings in the current pandemic is an individual matter and no Brother should feel obliged to, or be coerced, to attend a meeting until he is comfortable doing so.
Be aware however that the Government may at any time change the rules again in which case I may have to introduce restrictions again.
Sincerely and fraternally yours,
Farouk Khan DGM
