Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Information for Members

Updated 6/9/2021

Girl Scouts Together (updated 6-9-21) is your one-stop-shop for all of the information you need on GSOSW's reopening plans, the resumption of in-person Girl Scout activities, and resources for continuing successful virtual Girl Scout meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, Girl Scouts Together is primarily composed of GSOSW’s In-Person Troop/Group Meeting Guidelines (Pages 6-20), along with a few other helpful tools and resources. The guide is updated and enhanced regularly (generally once every two weeks) as new tools are developed, information changes, or member needs are identified. The most up-to-date version will always be available on this page.

Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington (GSOSW) staff will notify service units and troops directly if and when a county in their service unit is approved by GSOSW to resume in-person Girl Scout meetings and activities, or if a change in status and eligibility occurs. Approval is determined based on regional health authority metrics for disease spread risk for Oregon and Washington, and each county/region is evaluated on an individual basis. Please note that individual service units or troops/groups may serve members in multiple counties, which means they may need to accommodate members with different statuses and participation needs.

GSOSW will continue to monitor the most current health authority metrics for Oregon and Washington and maintain a list of counties eligible for GSOSW approval, updated on a weekly basis on this page. This list does not serve as approval to begin meeting , but rather indicates eligibility. GSOSW staff will directly notify service units and troops of county approval and guide them through the reopening process, where applicable.

We encourage you to review Girl Scouts Together with your family and Girl Scout troop to understand GSOSW’s guidelines and determine your family’s and troop’s preferences. It is important to note that no troop/group or individual is required to meet in person.

Thank you for your continued resilience and flexibility in the face of challenge and change! We are grateful for your partnership.
