Welcome to the
Farthest North Girl Scout Council

      COVID-19 and Girl Scouting

      – Updated May 17, 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. Thank you!

      Dear FNGSC Members,
      Starting May 17, 2021, Farthest North Girl Scout Council (FNGSC) is updating its COVID-19 threat level plan. FNGSC has updated the charts below, which are designed as our guide to office protocol and to help our members know the limitations for troops. The determination of risk level will continue to be updated weekly based on cases of coronavirus in Interior Alaska, and applying our adjustment to only include people under 40 years of age. The 14-day case count average, with our adjustment for age, will be posted to our website. Since the State of Alaska has lifted all mandates, the CDC is primarily our resource for our current updates. We have now applied the recommendations for vaccinated people, updated mask wearing rules, group size, and outdoor activities.

      *Fully vaccinated means person has received all shots necessary for their specific vaccine and 2 full weeks has passed since the final shot.

      If you have any questions about our safety policies, please call us at the Council office at 456-4782 or the Council hotline at 907-799-1612. FNGSC greatly appreciates everyone’s cooperation with this plan as we view the safety of our members, staff and our community as our number one priority.
