Decision #1

Decision #1 pertaining to the COVID-19 virus and Commandery activities.

A Message From Jeffrey N. Nelson, Grand Master

Sir Knights,

As we monitor global developments, we continue to use best practices to safeguard the health of our members. The Grand Encampment Knights Templar USA has taken clear and decisive action to address the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency, and I would like to share those actions with you. First, due to the extensive travels undertaken by - and expected of - Grand Encampment officers, and out of an abundance of caution, the Grand Encampment elected officers have suspended air travel through May 31, 2020.

Second, please refer to my previously released General Order No. 11, regarding the rescheduling of Grand Conclaves if such is needed. Also, remember to communicate with your Department Commander if a change to your Grand Conclave is being contemplated.

Third, the Grand Encampment officers have today made the difficult decision to cancel the three Grand Encampment sponsored 2020 Easter observances. If your Grand Commandery or Constituent Commandery still desires to have a local Easter observance that decision will be left to you.

As this situation evolves, we will keep you apprised of developments concerning Grand Encampment events and activities. We will ensure our information is distributed to you through our website, Facebook page, as well as direct communication between your Department Commander and your Grand Commandery.

During this time of crisis, please know your Grand Encampment officers stand ready to assist. If any Sir Knight is in need, I would remind you of our 40 Miles Project, under the able direction of our Grand Prelate, Sir Knight Arthur Hebbeler.

Jeffrey N. Nelson
Grand Master
