- Before attending, all volunteers must read these two sets of guidelines on appropriate cleaning and disinfection and hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette.
- A volunteer or coordinator should collect a signed COVID-19 Waiver from each partcipant for the event.
- While not required at volunteer led events, event coordinators, troop leaders, and volunteers can require the completion of a pre-screening prior to or upon arrival. At such events, a volunteer should be assigned to ask and document the responses to the screening checklist of all participants. Use the log provided here. This record must be kept confidentially with health forms and permission slips. This volunteer must serve as the point of notification for any post-meeting incident of a communicable disease. Upon notice, this volunteer and affected girl/parent/caregiver must complete and submit the COVID-19 incident form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional guidance will be provided upon receipt.
COVID-19 In-Person Troop or Group Meeting Guidelines
Last Updated: 3/25/2022
When deciding whether to host an in-person meeting, please consider the make-up and size of your troop or group, including possible attendees, their families, and their current comfort level with in-person activities. All members of the troop leadership team or service unit leadership team must be in agreement and willing to adhere to Girl Scouts of Central Texas (GSCTX) guidelines before resuming in-person meetings. We want to do our best to make sure all Girl Scouts, volunteers, and families feel included and safe throughout their Girl Scout experience and should not proceed with in-person activities that are not inclusive of all members of the troop or group.
Consider any recent updates from the state, the CDC, and local officials before you meet. If your local leadership has issued a stay-at-home order, please suspend in-person meeting until that order is lifted.
Virtual troop meetings and service unit meetings are encouraged. Safety Activity Checkpoints for virtual meetings and Internet Safety Pledge are available to ensure the continued safety and well-being of girls and volunteers while meeting virtually.
In-Person Meeting Guidelines
GSCTX is incredibly grateful for the support of our volunteers and caregivers. These safety guidelines must be provided to all participants, volunteers, and the caregiver/guardians of all girl participants before the in-person meeting takes place.
