On Monday night, the Lodge was notified that one of our members had tested positive for Coronavirus. Due to the member’s confirmed case of Covid 19 and their visit to the lodge on Saturday 7/18/2020, the Lodge contacted the Health Department immediately.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Lodge contracted with a professional cleaning service to use an electrostatic fog machine to disinfect and deep clean the entire Lodge and the staff members that were in contact with this individual have been asked to quarantine for two weeks. In accordance with the Grand Lodge recommended policy, the Lodge will be closed for the next two weeks to allow for this deep cleaning and sanitation. At this time, we will be closing the Lodge until Thursday, August 6th.
Please note, that when we reopen it will be with some new rules and regulations to prevent this from happening in the future. All members and guests will have their temperatures checked before entering the Lodge and everyone will be asked to throw away their own trash. As a reminder, no one will be allowed to stand at the bar, all members and guests must be seated, and everyone must wear a mask when moving around the Lodge.
Additionally, the Lodge meeting tonight will be done virtually through Zoom. There will be no in person meeting option. The link to join the Lodge meeting is: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/71242467655?pwd=QWtETzNpY01PU3EybytJMlNZQnM1UT09
