Scouting Safely

Co V Id 19 Back to scouting

A Scout is Clean.

As we continue in 2021 to social distance, wear masks, and consider the safety of all around us, Scouting also continues and we're ready. Use this as a teaching moment for our youth.
As a leadership organization, we want to do our best to assist with slowing any potential spread of Coronavirus and keep our Scouting family and community healthy. We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alabama State Board of Health.


Always consult the Guide to Safe Scouting for all BSA outings. It is an overview of Scouting policies and procedures gleaned from a variety of sources. Be aware of state or local government regulations that supersede Boy Scouts of America practices, policies, and guidelines. In situations not specifically covered in this guide, activity planners should evaluate the risk or potential risk of harm, and respond with action plans based on common sense, community standards, the Boy Scout motto, and safety policies and practices commonly prescribed for the activity by experienced providers and practitioners.
