GSVSC COVID Guidelines Retired

The Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council's COVID guidelines officially retired on May 25, 2023. Guidance regarding infectious disease safety for Girl Scouts will be included in the Safety Activity Checkpoints updates. 

Infectious Disease Safety for Girl Scouts: Girl Scouts will use a commonsense approach to health and safety.  Before participating in Girl Scouting activities, members are to undergo health checks at home for any combination of symptoms such as fever of 100.4 (or need for fever-reducing medications), chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, excessive fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, stomach aches, nausea, and/or vomiting.  Members with any combination of these symptoms or in need of fever-reducing medication must stay home until fully recovered.

Things we've learned and will keep:

  • Practice good hygiene by washing or disinfecting hands frequently.

  • Members who have been in close contact with someone who is sick should monitor themselves for symptoms, and stay home if symptoms develop.
  • Wear a mask when you feel the need. Don’t judge others. It is a personal decision to wear a mask in public.

If you have questions or need further assistance, please reach out to us at or 540-777-5100. If you have an emergency after hours, then please call the emergency number at 1-540-598-0974. Your call will be answered by a council staff member.
