COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates
Working together to keep our Girl Scout community safe.
Last Updated: 9/22/2021
Girl Scouts of Central Texas health, safety, and facilities use guidelines consider GSUSA guidelines, Governor Abbott’s orders for opening businesses, youth camps, youth activities, and outdoor events, local officials’ orders, guidance from the CDC, guidance from the American Camp Association, and our ability to create safe spaces for girls, staff, and volunteers.
When deciding whether or not to meet in-person, consider recent updates from the state, the CDC, and local officials. If your local leadership has issued a stay-at-home order, please suspend in-person meetings until that order is lifted.
Guidelines will be adjusted and updated as additional recommendations and protocols are released.
