Edict No. 3-2021
To the Brethren of the Grand Lodge of Nevada:
This clarification Edict 3-2021 supplements Edict 1-2021 dated November 19, 2020. Your Grand Lodge Office has received many questions and complaints regarding the definition of "Masonic activity" as it relates to Edict 1-2021. As your Grand Master, I apologize for causing confusion in the Craft. For that reason, this clarification Edict 3-2021 defines "Masonic activity" as any in-person activity for which being a Master Mason in good standing in the State of Nevada is a prerequisite for attendance or membership.
Public or private gatherings that do not require good standing as a Master Mason in Nevada to participate do not apply to this clarification Edict 3-2021.
The current recommendations by CDC and our local health departments are to observe the following: wear a mask, proper social distancing and avoiding all non-essential business or meetings.
Edict 1-2021 and Edict 3-2021 will remain in effect until further notice.
It is my sincere hope that Edict 1-2021 and Edict 3-2021 will be rescinded in the very near future based on positive news from our State of Nevada. I thank you for your continued patience, understanding and assistance in these very difficult and unpredictable times.
Please be safe, my Brothers.
Richard M. Graver, Jr.
