Working Together to Keep Our Girl Scout Community Safe
Updated: May 12, 2021
Since our Council spans many jurisdictions with ever-changing COVID-related decisions, the Council adopted a stepped approach to guide a safe transition to in-person gatherings. The Council is currently at Step III:
- Members of the troop and/or service unit must agree and adhere to COVID-19 Safety Precautions.
- Maximum of 75 people at an in-person indoor gathering.
- Maximum 150 people at an in-person outdoor gathering.
- Girl members should be in activity groups of no more than 25 total people (Daisy and Brownie 21 girls, 4 adults; Junior and above 23 girls, 2 adults).
- Members traveling outside of the Delaware, District of Columbia,
Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, or West Virginia must
self-quarantine for 10-days before attending an in-person Girl Scout
gathering or satisfy one of the other options on the pre-screen
If state or local government guidelines are more restrictive than the Council guidelines, members are expected to adhere to the government guidelines.
