Welcome to the
Farthest North Girl Scout Council

      COVID-19 and Girl Scouting

      To our Farthest North Girl Scout members,

      The Girl Scout staff are excited for another year with all of you. Things will look a bit different this year, but know that we are here to support you and your Girl Scout troop. The Council has created a color-coded system to adjust with the threat level from the Coronavirus. Our system is very similar to that of the school districts in Alaska and is based upon case-levels in Interior Alaska. Decisions on the North Slope and Northwest Arctic Regions will be made independently, based on circumstances in those communities.

      If you are planning to visit the Girl Scout office in Fairbanks, please refer to this chart and our current threat level to see if our offices are open. When open, masks and social distancing will be required.

      If you are a troop leader, the chart for troops will give you guidance for troop meetings or special trips. Masks are required for all troop meetings this year and can only be removed if all girls are seated for an activity and at least 6 feet apart. Social distancing will be maintained at all times.

      Thank you to all of our members for following these additional requirements and we hope this guidance will allow you to have a spectacular Girl Scout year. Please contact the office if you have any questions, 907-456-4782 or 800-478-4782.
