Scouting continues during the virus pandemic.
However, the Council is committed, as its top priority, to the health and safety of our youth, parents and volunteers as we engage in activities.
The Council issues quarterly guidance to units, districts and the council, consistent with local government guidelines, on which types of scouting activities can be conducted indoors and outdoors in light of the virus.
The current guidance can be found here.
