COVID-19 Troop Guidelines
As the start of a new Girl Scout program year nears, we understand that there are new questions surrounding the COVID-19 impact on meetings and events. To help guide your troop’s decisions in how to meet this year, whether virtual, in person outdoors, in person in a home, or in your normal meeting place, please utilize the GSCB Troop Guidelines found here. Please remember that as the recommendations for COVID-19 safety become more robust, these guidelines are subject to change and we will communicate changes to volunteers at such time via email.
COVID-19 Troop Action Forms – ACTION REQUIRED!
To help GSCB staff support troops through this year, it is imperative that we know the status of all troops and how they plan on meeting from now through December 1st, 2020. If you are a Troop Leader and have not already completed a Troop Participation Form, please take the opportunity to do so now.
Additionally, ALL TROOPS are now being asked to complete a GSCB COVID-19 Troop Action Form before August 31st to ensure your troop’s meeting accommodations are documented and we can provide troop support for your specific situation.
COVID-19 Liability Waiver
Throughout the Girl Scouting year we will be asking families participating in any in-person events or troop meeting to complete an additional COVID-19 Liability Waiver. Once you complete your COVID-19 TROOP ACTION FORM, if your troop is meeting in person you will be provided a link to this form to distribute to families in your troop.
To help support the completion of this waiver, GSCB will also be communicating to families via email on August 17th, and share through GSCB social media channels. Families completing this form will be prompted to provide their troop leader’s email address, once this is accurately provided you will receive an email to track all completed liability forms. To prepare please ensure families have the email address you’d like to receive this communication to. You may also start distributing the link to this electronic form found below.
