Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) – Update August 26, 2020 5:30
p.m (last update posted August 24, 2020)
COVID-19 is a very dangerous disease and continues to pose a high
risk for vulnerable populations.
Girl Scouts of the USA and Girl Scouts of Citrus encourage virtual
troop meetings as the most effective way to provide a safe Girl
Scout experience until we have successfully completed the Center for
Disease Control's Phase Three benchmarks. However, based on the
comfort level of Girl Scout troop members and families, we have
finalized the details for troops to begin meeting in-person as long
as they adhere to the COVID-19 safety guidelines. Please see these
details in the Troop Meetings, Events & Camporees tab below.
All guidelines will be based upon recommendations from GSUSA, the
CDC, local health officials, the Federal Government and informed by
State of Florida and County Government(s).
It is imperative that we keep a nimble and flexible mindset as the
situation with COVID-19 continues to rapidly change. Regular updates
will be posted as the situation evolves.
We recognize that the uncertainties surrounding the virus are
causing a great deal of stress. We will continue to monitor the
situation and will continue to adjust girl activities as recommended
by GSUSA, the CDC and local Health Department.
