Girl Scouts of Western Washington continues to regularly review these guidelines and uses guidance from the CDC and Washington state to inform our policies.
All youth, adult, and host participants are required to complete a Girl Scout Ready health assessment prior to in-person programming. You will be asked by program leadership if you’ve completed your Girl Scout Ready health assessment upon sign-in.
In the last 72 hours, have you/your Girl Scout experienced ANY of the following new symptoms that cannot be attributed to another health condition or specific activity such as physical exercise?
If you answered yes to any of the above health check questions, please stay home or follow up with a medical provider.
Troops and groups are allowed to set safety guidelines that are stricter than those set by Girl Scouts of Western Washington Safety Guidelines. Common safety requirements that are approved include:
If your troop or group wants to require additional guidelines outside of these common requirements, please reach out to Customer Care for final approval.
If a volunteer, program host, and/or participant is exhibiting symptoms of illness that cannot be attributed to another health condition or specific activity they are required to leave the program site immediately. If unable to leave immediately, the following protocols should be followed:
For the purposes of this policy, we are defining sickness as answering “Yes” to any of the questions in the Girl Scout Ready assessment.
In the event of a participant, volunteer, or program host gets sick at a Girl Scout activity or displays symptoms of illness soon after a Girl Scout activity, promptly contact a member of Girl Scouts of Western Washington’s customer care team at 800-541-9852 or email@example.com, or the after-hours emergency line (800) 303-9963, if applicable.
