To the Brethren of the Grand Lodge of Nevada:

Edict No. 1-2021

To the Brethren of the Grand Lodge of Nevada:

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and for the health and safety of our members and their families, I hereby suspend all Masonic activities until further notice.

For upcoming Lodge elections, under Section 5.020 (1) of the Nevada Masonic Code, the Grand Master has issued a blanket dispensation to all Lodges to allow them to hold their Elections at a safer time when they can meet. Per Section 5.010 (4) of the Nevada Masonic Code, all current Officers shall hold their current offices until their successors are elected and installed. While this Edict is in effect, all usual bills such as rent, utilities and services may be paid when ordered by the Worshipful Master.

In these very unpredictable times, let us continue to reach out to our Brothers by telephone, text, email, or zoom to make sure they are doing well. Enjoy the upcoming Holidays with your family.

A written compliance to this Edict shall be transmitted to the office of the Grand Secretary immediately following receipt thereof.


Richard M. Graver
