Hail members and friends of the Freehold!
As many of you are no doubt aware Novel Coronavirus is currently spreading among the population, and everyone is now being required to take every possible step to limit infection vectors. It is for this reason that we will not be hosting a physical Althing this year. We will instead hold an online forum to handle the business of the Freehold. Details will be forthcoming as the Witan decide on a specific method and dates for the Althing.
It is our hope that this decision will appear to be an overreaction in years to come, but we are not willing to gamble with the lives of our community when a safer option is available. I for one will miss seeing you all in person this year, but I am glad to know that you will be safer for it.
May the gods keep you all safe and healthy. Remember to make frequent ablutions as a devotional act to Eir in these times.
In Frith and Service,
Freyr of the BCHF
