Welcome to the
Farthest North Girl Scout Council
COVID-19 and Girl Scouting
– Updated April 28, 2021 –
The Council has 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 and the demographics that we serve. Decisions on the North Slope and Northwest Arctic Regions will be made independently, based on circumstances in those communities.
Our Council office is currently operating on limited staff. Please call ahead before you stop by, as we may be out to lunch. When you do stop by, masks and social distancing are required. Thank you!
With the recent surge in Interior Alaska COVID case numbers, we expect to be in our RED threat zone for the next three weeks, meaning troop meetings or Service Unit events cannot be held in person. Therefore, we ask for troops to reschedule any planned in-person activities or events until after May 15th. We will reassess at that time and hopefully make allowance for outside meetings, even during the Red Zone. If we can ease the restrictions prior to that, we will let you know. We can all do our part by wearing our masks, washing our hands and practicing social distancing. We’ve done it before, let’s do it again so we can get back to in-person troop meetings and hopefully camping trips this summer! If you have any questions about our safety policies, please call us at the Council office at 456-4782. Thank you everyone for your continued patience.
For the week of May 10th,
the Council is in the RED Zone.
As of May 10th the 2-week daily case count average is 16.3.
Green Zone: <5 cases on average in the last 14 days
Yellow Zone: 5-10 cases on average in the last 14 days
Red Zone: >10 cases on average in the last 14 days
