Good evening, Eastern Populace.
This evening (4/15/2022), it was reported that there was a potential exposure to COVID during Coronation, held on 4/9/2022.
One person was asymptomatic during the entirety of the event, wore a mask as appropriate, and passed through the COVIDSafe check point. They tested positive upon returning home on Tuesday (4/12/2022).
We are sharing this information as an announcement so everyone is able to make informed choices regarding your own health and well being.

We are all excited for the return of events, and the local, regional, and Kingdom staff are ensuring COVIDSafe policy is being adhered to.
As a gentle reminder, if you are feeling sick or have been around others who were sick, please stay home and take care of yourselves. Everyone has been dealing with the pandemic at their own levels, and while there is an anticipated risk by attending a large event, we still have a responsibility to do our part to create a safe environment for our community.
In Service to the Kingdom,
