Communication Regarding Civility and the COVID Discussions

Good afternoon, Tyger Populace, 

I wanted to reach out briefly to let you all know that I am here and reading email.  However, I am trying to get some clarification from “above” regarding some specifics to the change in policies and precautions surrounding COVIDSafe and masking. I need some further guidance before I can commit to anything at this time. 

I would ask you all to also understand that while I make these decisions in consultation with the Crown, and they have supported them, ultimately the decision is mine to make. Their Majesties and Their Highnesses, while supporting the decision, did not make the final call. Please consider that when you are sharing your concerns. 

As a reminder, courtesy and respect is paramount even when you don’t agree with each other or the decisions that have been made.  I have heard some unsettling rumors regarding people’s lives and occupations being threatened by others.  This comes from both sides of the debate.  If I am able to track down the sources, conversations will be had and repercussions possible. 

This conversation is not easy. These decisions are not easy. I ask that you consider that when you are engaging in discussion and remember to keep to civility.  

Thank you all for your patience while I work through it all. 

Be kind to each other. 

In Service,
