COVID-19 Guidance for Returning to In-Person Troop Meetings & Activities

As our council regions move through re-opening, we’ve created recommended guidance for you to follow. 

We recognize that returning to in-person troop meetings and activities is a decision to be made with careful consideration and one that will happen when the time is right for you and your girls.

Please note that we may modify this guidance from time to time and as circumstances change. 

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily in the community. Please take all reasonable precautions to limit potential exposure for girls, volunteers and families. 

Please refer to these documents to review all aspects and then work with your Engagement Manager to help answer any additional questions or concerns you may have. (Documents are also available on our Forms page.)
