(Updated Feb. 5,
Scouts of Greater Los Angeles recognizes that the COVID-19 health
crisis is a fluid situation, and we continue to monitor the
guidelines provided by the state and local agencies. We recognize
that things are difficult right now and many troops are connecting
virtually, and we encourage you to continue to do so. Effective Monday, March 1, a
leader/troop can meet in-person following GSGLA's In-person Troop Guidelines.
We want to support you by
providing options to allow your troop to connect – virtually and or
in-person. GSGLA recommends a blended approach, connecting virtually
and in-person; this allows all members of a troop to participate in
a way that is comfortable for the girl and her family.
Starting March 1: Limited* outdoor in-person troop meetings
(*limited to 14 girls and 2 adults), outdoor in-person parent
meetings, and outdoor in-person service unit leader meetings are
permitted in a limited capacity.
Step 1: Review the GSGLA In-person Activity Guidance for Volunteers document.
Step 2: Every member/girl/family that will meet in person must
fill out the GSGLA Member Agreement Participation Form.
Families can assist in helping to maintain a safe environment for
all girls and volunteers. An agreement should be completed by families
prior to the first in-person meeting. It outlines what families can
expect and how they can help. (A hard copy of this physical form will
be maintained by troop leaders.)
Step 3: Complete the Assumption of Risk, Release, and Liability Related
to COVID-19 eForm.
This eForm should be completed for each participant (girls and
adults) who are attending in-person meetings, leaders will receive
notification that troop members have completed it. If you have
questions regarding completion, please contact email@example.com.
Step 4: The member attending an in-person meeting/activity
should complete the Member Self-Screening Checklist prior to attending.
Self-Screening questions to be completed prior to attendance at
every in-person gathering to ensure that participants are following
health screening guidelines. (This information is NOT to be retained
by troop/group/event leader and is for the participant only.)
Step 5: Print and have available the Troop/Service Unit In-person Meeting Activity
This sheet is to be completed for each troop or service unit
in-person gathering. It serves two purposes 1.) to indicate that
participants acknowledge that screening guidelines have been met and
2.) serves as a roster of those who were physically present for event
or activity (This form is to be retained by meeting organizer, see
details on form.)
COVID-19 Notification Report
Use this form to notify GSGLA if someone connected to your troop or
service unit is diagnosed with COVID-19 and has potentially exposed
others during a Girl Scout event or activity. To maintain the affected
person's privacy, do not share health information with others; council
staff will notify those potentially exposed in a manner consistent
with healthcare privacy laws. After filling out the document, please
email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
