DEPARTMENT ORDER # 3, 2020-2021

1. Given the current Covid virus pandemic, It has been difficult for camps to meet in an in-person setting at their usual meeting places. The virus has surged again in several areas and the pandemic will likely continue until an effective vaccine has been developed.

2. For the protection of our Brothers in the Department of Tennessee, electronic meetings using media such as Zoom are authorized so long as the pandemic continues. This is in line with the National Organization’s policy.

3. This General Order does not prohibit in-person camp meetings. It is meant to give camps an option to use electronic means during the course of the pandemic and will remain in effect until rescinded by General order.
Ordered this 25th Day of October 2020.
