The safety and well-being of our Scouts, volunteers, employees, and community is our top priority.
As we plan to transition through the COVID-19 quarantine, we continue to take guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as state and local (county and city) health departments, and chartered partners policies to ensure that local Scouting activities are as safe as possible and maintain the policies outlined in the Guide to Safe Scouting.
It is important to ensure that all participating youth and adults are registered in Scouting. Any participating adult should be current on their Youth Protection Training (YPT).
As COVID-19 restrictions change, please consult the following sites for the most up to date guidelines.
