Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve emphasized and lived by our #1 priority: keeping our Girl Scouts, their families, our employees, and our volunteers safe. Our volunteers have helped us face these unprecedented challenges and now we are at a point where, with caution and care, we can resume some of our valued in-person Girl Scout activities starting in August.
As of August 1, we entered Phase 1 of our reopening. While guidelines and timelines for the following phases will be released at a later date, we have prepared guidelines for troops and service units to follow when planning and hosting in-person activities and meetings. We are requiring social distancing and the use of face masks. All city, county, and state guidelines for your area must be followed—especially if these guidelines are stricter than what GSMH allows.
It is also so important to remember we are girl-led, and allow each volunteer and family to determine the level of participation that they are comfortable with. For any troops who choose to resume in-person activities, please continue to offer alternative ways for the girls to connect.
