Working Together to Keep Our Girl Scout Community Safe
Updated: August 30. 2022
Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital has lifted most restrictions to be in accordance with common practice of the public. Members are not required to be vaccinated to participate in gatherings. Masks are optional for all in-person Girl Scout gatherings and there are no restrictions on group sizes beyond venue capacity limits.
We do require guardians or caregivers to complete a pre-screening form when their child participates in a gathering consisting of multiple troops in the event a participant tests positive afterwards. Adult volunteer meetings no longer require a pre-screen form if a roster of attendees is available for contact tracing.
In the event of a positive COVID test within five (5) days of a gathering, troop leaders or volunteers should notify other gathering participants. If exposed to COVID, we recommend that individuals follow CDC protocol: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/if-you-were-exposed.html
Positive COVID incidents should be reported to council (firstname.lastname@example.org) only if they are after a Service Unit or Association gathering. If an individual tests positive after a troop meeting, there is no need to notify council staff. Further details on reporting can be found on page 7 and 8 of the Response Guidelines linked below.
If state or local government guidelines are more restrictive than the Council guidelines, members are expected to adhere to the government guidelines.
