During HIGH Community Levels, masks are strongly recommended at in-person Girl Scout meetings, activities, or events. Wear a mask when requested by the troop leader, event director, or camp director. These staff and volunteers are in the best position to determine whether greater protection is needed given the nature of the event, the participants' needs, and the circumstances in the community.
Masks are optional, except when required by local authorities where the activity is taking place, including schools. This may include masking when using public transportation, in health care settings, and similar situations. You may also wish to wear a mask in crowded indoor settings such as theaters.
Do not wear masks (but do keep 6 feet apart) when:
- Eating or drinking
- Exempted by a doctor, due to a medical condition. In this case, wear a non-restrictive alternative, such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom edge, if your condition allows it.
- Other listed situations apply.
See the California Department of Public Health’s mask mandate notice dated Jan. 10, 2022. Consider upgrading your mask for better protection.
