All participants must be separated into activity groups of no more than 20 total people (including at least two adults or required adult ratio). Meeting space must accommodate the size of the group and include the ability to maintain six feet of physical distance between members of different households. Volunteers will receive additional guidance about maintaining activity cohorts/pods at larger events.
COVID-19 Updates from GSSJC
Last updated Oct. 1, 2021 at 5 p.m. CT.
Girl Scouts of San Jacinto strives for all Girl Scouts, volunteers,
and families to feel included and safe throughout their Girl Scout
experience. We continue to monitor COVID-19 through the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, local public health
departments, and counties and cities within our council jurisdiction.
COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily in the community. Volunteers should take all reasonable precautions to limit potential exposure for girls, themselves, and families. The status of community spread and risk to participate in activities is continually changing. Girl Scouts should ensure they are following current guidance from GSSJC as well as the CDC and local public health authorities for personal health and hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting. Additionally, Girl Scouts should be prepared by having masks, hand sanitizer, and cleaning supplies available.
If any Girl Scout or participant is confirmed to be COVID-19 positive within 14 days of participating in a Girl Scout activity, the family must contact Melissa Hardy (firstname.lastname@example.org) to allow council staff to manage communication and contact tracing and maintain appropriate confidentiality.
Rapid testing may be required upon arrival at camp and will be
determined based on test availability and nature of program
Note: Troops and individual adult volunteers may choose to self-test prior to driving to camp to ensure that everyone in the group tests negative, and if doing so, may skip the testing at camp check-in. Individual girls attending camp will continue to be tested at check-in. For guidance see Form F-219E GSSJC Pretesting Option for GSSJC Camp Activities
Those who have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 90 days may provide a doctor’s note in lieu of required testing. If this applies to you or someone in your troop and you are unable to secure a doctor’s note, please contact Melissa Hardy at email@example.com for further guidance.
