COVID-19 Availability Information
Updated August 5, 2020
In an effort to support the health of our community and to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Davis Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) will be making adjustments to organizational activities.
All Odd Fellows Activities are Temporarily Suspended
The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge of California is an important resource for our members and the community. It is even more important that we take steps to ensure the safety of all.
During this COVID-19 crisis, we will be suspending Lodge activities and will be following protocols to help keep members, staff, and others healthy and safe . The Lodge Hall will be closed to the public, in-person meeting will be limited, events are temporarily suspended, and Lodge Hall operations will be scaled-back to a minimum.
These changes will certainly put a strain on our membership, our resources, and our community. We hope that we will be stronger as we exit this crisis.
Please email us with any questions or special requests.

If you are reading this article, odds are that you are an Odd Fellow, and a pretty dedicated member at that. Today’s article asks YOU three very important questions that every Odd Fellow and every Rebekah should ask themselves, and then answer.
Is rudeness and bullying widespread and prevalent in the IOOF? I doubt it. However, it does exist in some Odd Fellow Lodges and it adversely affects members – particularly new members – who may decide that their Lodge experience has ceased to be enjoyable.
