Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Information for Members

Updated 9/15/2021

Girl Scouts Together (updated 9-15-21) 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 successful 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). The most up-to-date version will always be available on this page.

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.
