COVID-19 Guidelines

posted Aug 15, 2020, 2:15 PM by Edina Cub Scout Pack 168   [ updated Aug 18, 2020, 7:37 PM ]

COVID-19 guidelines will be followed for the 2020-2021 School Year
August 5, 2020

Pack 168 is committed to the well-being and safety of our scouts and adult leaders, and accordingly are
following the recommended guidelines from the Northern Star Council for all scout related activities at
the Pack and Den level:

  • We will follow state guidelines with regards to social distancing and sanitizing, which at this time require groups of young people and adult leaders that number 25 or fewer in an outdoor space, or fewer than 10 in an indoor space, and follow all social distancing (including 6' spacing) as well as self-screening safety standards.
  • Northern Star Council has provided a Participant health screening checklist, which is to be used by participants (scouts, youth and adult volunteers, vendors, visitors, etc.) to screen for potentially communicable diseases before departure on the day of an event, camp, or outing.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should we wear a mask during Scouting
activities?
 Following state guidelines, all people should wear a mask when social
distancing is difficult, either indoors or outdoors. Additionally, masks should
be worn when in indoor spaces or vehicles containing multiple people. Masks
are not necessary if the group of people all live together in the same
household.
What if a participant
cannot wear a mask
during Scouting
activities?
 Unless a participant has a medical exemption, all participants must comply
with state guidelines requiring use of masks indoors and when social
distancing is not possible outdoors. Those who have a medical exemption
should sign the exemption sheet to be kept on file with the unit or activity
leader. Those with a valid exemption will be asked to wear a face shield and
indoor activities will be restricted to well-ventilated spaces that provide at
least 144 square feet of floor space per person. If a participant cannot wear a
face covering of any type their involvement in indoor programming, or
outdoor programming without social distancing at all times, will be limited.
Where can I find
detailed recommendations and guidelines from the
State of Minnesota for
preventing further transmission of COVID-19?
 We are following the detailed recommendations that can be
found here:
What decision criteria
will be used when
determining whether a
meeting, activity, or
outing may take place?
 Northern Star Council has requested that all scouting units use the following
flowchart as a guide for deciding whether a meeting, activity, or outing may
be scheduled:


Specific COVID-19 precautions Pack 168 is taking for the 2020-2021 school year:

o Conducting meetings using virtual meeting technologies as a way for families to connect
with their fellow scouts and complete rank requirements.
o For our rank requirements that include outings or in-person activities, we will follow
current guidelines at the time of our outing, which at this time guidelines include
completing the 
Participant health screening checklist, and meeting outdoors in groups of 25 or fewer; we will
wear masks when its not possible to socially distance outdoors.
o Fall recruitment to be conducted using virtual meeting technologies for interested
scouts and their families to interact with Pack and Den leaders.
o Schedule time slots for Dens, or within Dens (for larger Dens) to participate in popular
in-person Pack events such as Rocket Day, Egg Drop, Pinewood Derby, Blue and Gold
Banquet.
o Conduct the Fall Hot Dog Roast at the Den level, outdoors and with family units seated
together at a Den leader’s home or park that provides ample space for social distancing
and in groups of 25 or less.
o Structure seasonal camping and Polar Cubs so that family units are placed in small
groups/pods and remain together throughout the event, while also remaining socially
distanced from other small groups/pods.
o Fundraising activities to be conducted using electronic tools and virtual meetings,
including placing orders and payment electronically; pick-up of wreaths at a scout
leader’s home to be scheduled by family unit, and drop-off to be scheduled by the scout
with the customer.
