The Knights of Columbus is carefully monitoring the Coronavirus situation and its impact on the Order. Since the virus is spread by personal contact, containment efforts stress social distancing by restricting travel, meetings and other gatherings. Accordingly, the Supreme Council most strongly recommends the following actions to protect brother Knights and others:

• Cancel all personal contact meetings, including business meetings, until further notice.
• Cancel all planned events, where people would gather, until further notice.
• Cancel all travel for Knights of Columbus business until further notice.

(the memo outlines methods to continue the functioning of the Order)

This is a moment to deepen our commitment to the very principles which define us: charity,
unity and fraternity. There will likely be many opportunities in coming weeks to live out these
principles in service to our brother Knights, our families and our communities. May this time of
difficulty also be a moment when we as Knights step into the breach and show ourselves to be
disciples of Jesus Christ and men at the service of others.
