COVID-19 information

June 2, 2021 Update

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

The new news for this month:

  • U.S.G.L. is no longer prohibiting Order related travel for Fully Vaccinated Persons (F.V.P.).

  • We have published a new Frequently Asked Questions page.

  • Relaxed masking & social distancing options are now available for F.V.P.

On May 16, 2021 the CDC announced the FVP--that is, people who are 2 weeks after their second/final vaccine dose—can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

Effective immediately, for ALL EVENT PROPOSALS, the Local Body Master (or the High Priestess & Most Wise Sovereign, for a Chapter event) may select one of the following options:

Option 1: Verified FVP are not required to wear a mask or socially distance. All others are required to wear a mask and socially distance.

Option 2: All persons are required to wear a mask and socially distance.

Please address this change when submitting future proposals. Documents will be updated over the next few days, and will be available upon request.
