April 24, 2020

To: All Particular Lodges and Members of The Grand Lodge of Florida

DIRECTIVE NO. 4

In consequence of the ongoing orders set out by the Governor of the State of Florida concerning the coronavirus pandemic, as Grand Master, I hereby ORDER AND DIRECT that effective immediately all Stated and Called Communications, Masonic meetings and events are suspended until at least June 1, 2020. This suspension includes, but is not limited to, all Masonic Education/Masonic Leadership Training classes, Secretaries and Treasurers Seminars, Child ID Events, Social Gatherings, all Allied and Appendant Orders and Masonic Youth Groups that meet in any Lodge buildings, and Lodge building rentals. If a Brother is working with a candidate on catechisms outside the Lodge building, continuing to get together for instruction is up to the individuals; however, they should practice “social distancing” and following the guidelines set by the Center for Disease Control. This Directive should be forwarded to your Lodge membership and may be considered proper notification.

My Brothers, this situation continues to be fluid and moving very fast. The safety of our Brothers and their families shall be the priority and please use common sense and be safe.

Take due notice and govern yourselves accordingly. Sincerely and fraternally,

John W. Westerman, III Grand Master
