GUIDELINES FOR SCOUTING UNITS

Effective on March 4, 2022

  • In general, masks are no longer required except in these cases:
    • A fully vaccinated person only needs to wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home) if they have a weakened immune system, if they are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in their household has a weakened immune system and is at increased risk for severe disease or is unvaccinated.
    • Individuals who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a face covering or mask when indoors with others to help prevent spreading COVID-19.
    • People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.
  • People may choose to mask at any time.
  • Please note that some businesses, organizations, public transportation and other venues may have stricter guidelines than listed here. In those circumstances, the stricter requirements must be followed by our Scouting units. Scouts and leaders are expected to adhere to their requirements and to set an example for others.

Remember:

  • If someone feels ill, they should stay home.
  • Outdoor activities are still highly encouraged.
  • Social distancing of 6 feet encouraged for those who are at-risk or unvaccinated.

 

Tenting–Single person tenting is still required for unvaccinated individuals. Unvaccinated persons from the same household may share a tent but must follow YPT tenting rules.

Cabins—We will be making many of our cabins available for rent starting April 1 at full capacity.  You should avoid large groups of people indoors.  You can supplement cabin rentals with tents set up outside for additional people.

From the CDC—COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area.

For more information, please visit COVID-19 by County | CDC

 


 

The Council will continue to offer camps as locations for unit meetings, hiking and tent camping at no cost. There will be rental fees for cabins.  Camps and cabins must be reserved in advance.

All camp properties are now open for weekend camping reservations through August 2022.

 

Units: Please refer to the “SAFE Restart Scouting Checklist” for helpful tips!
