Outdoor Events Policy

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

Effective Aug 10, 2021the policy has been rewritten to reflect changes in C.D.C. recommendations. Bodies of O.T.O. may meet without U.S.G.L. dispensation under the following circumstances ONLY:

  1. F.V.P. are not required to maintain distance, all others are required to maintain distance.

  2. All persons are required to social distance.

  • No shouting or singing

  • Hand sanitizer available

  • May utilize an indoor bathroom

*”Stay At Home” is generally defined as people who live in the same home and stay at home as much as possible who only leave for work and essential activities and are avoiding group/indoor gatherings. See your local regulations for definitions specific to your state/county.

Any outdoor rituals performed must conform to the above restrictions. Additional dispensation is required for outdoor celebrations of the Gnostic Mass or Initiation. For more information contact planning@oto-usa.org.
