Delivering on our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place, is more important now than ever before, and the health and safety of our girls, volunteers, and staff is paramount.

Recognizing the fluidity of the coronavirus situation, Girl Scouts of Orange County will continue to follow all State and CDC COVID-19 guidelines to help keep our members and community safe. Thank you for adhering to these guidelines and the safety measures detailed below. When in doubt, use the  Girl Scout Promise and Law to guide you.

Guidelines to Keep Yourself and Others Safe

To keep yourself and others safe, follow these six guidelines:

  • Monitor Your Health Daily
    • Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19, AND STAY HOME IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD IS SICK.
    • Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
  • Get Vaccinated
    • The CDC recommends that you get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can.
    • Girl Scouts does not require vaccination to become a member; however, there may be times when the Council requires vaccination to participate in specific activities.
    • Vaccine status is private health information, and the decision to vaccinate or not is highly personal. Be sure to respect individual decisions. 
  • Masks
    • Public health officials advise wearing a mask in public areas where COVID-19 Community Level is high, regardless of vaccination status.
    • Though the indoor mask mandate ended in California on March 1, masks are strongly recommended for unvaccinated people.
    • People at higher risk of getting very sick with COVID-19 or those who live in a household with anyone at risk should consider wearing a mask.
    • Consult the State of California’s mask recommendations and requirements for the most up-to-date information.
    • If a troop or group leader advises you to wear a mask, follow that guidance; it may be based on private information about an at-risk individual in the troop or group.
  • Maintain Physical Distance
