To our Scouting Family and Friends,

Recently the California Department of Public Health has published or announced new guidance for the use of face coverings.

The main point of the CDPH Guidance for Face Coverings as it relates to Scouting.

  1. Masks are required indoors for all individuals (youth and adults) regardless of vaccination status at all times.

As vaccination levels continue to increase, we ask our members and their families to use extreme caution and follow all guidance from our state and local health departments.

Thank you again for your partnership, flexibility, and patience as we navigate this challenging and unprecedented chapter in our council’s history together. As we have since the onset of COVID-19, we will continue to monitor this situation closely and follow guidelines from expert health agencies while keeping our Scouting community informed.

Would you please continue to visit for COVID-19 updates, information, and resources?

For any further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the COVID helpline by email at
