Dear Sir and Brother
Public health concerns about the coronavirus (Covid-19)
In view of the current concerns about the spread of the new coronavirus – often referred to as Covid-19 – I would ask all our members to consider, very carefully, whether they should be attending meetings if they’re feeling unwell. This is particularly relevant if they are suffering from something that others may be at risk of catching.
Brethren worried about the situation in England & Wales should view the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ whilst Brethren living outside the UK should consult their local health authority. The following guidance issued by the United Grand Lodge of England is also worth noting:
Updated guidance will be issued if the situation changes.
With fraternal regards and best wishes.
