COVID Updates

Updated Mask Mandate (05/16/21): If you’ve received both of your COVID-19 shots, you can remove your mask while attending an Eastern Star meeting when around others who have been vaccinated IF your county allows this ruling. If you have not been vaccinated, you must keep a CDC approved mask on that completely covers your nose and mouth. Face shields or ½ masks alone are not acceptable coverings. If you have received your vaccine and are still uncomfortable around others you may continue to wear your face mask when in the presence of others.
