Welcome to the
Farthest North Girl Scout Council
COVID-19 and Girl Scouting
– UPDATED september 27, 2021 –
A sincere and sober message to our membership,
Covid-19 cases in our community are at an all-time high and proving very deadly. As we have heard, the highest rates in the nation. As such, we are taking measures at the Girl Scout office immediately for everyone’s safety. Starting Monday, September 27th, our office will be observing contactless transactions and a self-serve lobby, one customer at a time. The front doors will be locked and customers will be allowed in one at a time. Directions regarding these procedures and a phone number will be posted on the doors. We will be utilizing our pickup table in the lobby as much as possible and ask that our members call ahead for all shop orders, including purchase of the Basics Kit. Curbside pickup is also available and we would be happy to bring your order to your car. Please allow time in-between customers in our lobby for sanitation. Thank you in advance for your understanding. We are available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 456-4782.
At the troop level, please consider virtual options for the near future or make sure groups do not exceed 25 indoors. Mask wearing and social distancing must be observed at all times. Refrain from snack time, no field trips and make sure sanitation is top of mind. If you need items such as hand sanitizer or clorox wipes, please use troop funds or contact our office for a supply of these items at no charge. No extra members such as siblings are allowed, only registered members. These mandates are in place for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
We urge all of our members to stay home if feeling sick or exposed to Covid-19. This applies to visits to the Council office and Girl Scout Troop Meetings. The sooner we get this virus under control, the sooner we can return to our normal routines.
If you have any questions about our safety policies, please call us at 907-456-4782 or the Council hotline at 907-799-1612. Thank you for your continued support and for keeping each other safe throughout the pandemic. Let’s keep being safe this fall so we can keep Girl Scouting!
