Current Guidelines

At Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson, Inc, the health and safety of our girls, volunteers, and staff are our first priority. We will continue to revise our guidelines based on the best available information. Please also continue to follow current local, state, and CDC guidelines for your location.

UPDATE: September 27, 2021 - GSHH COVID-19 Volunteer Guidelines 

Updated Guidance on Mask Wearing - August 31, 2021

MASKS (Indoor) - Masks must be worn indoors by everyone: adults and children regardless of vaccination status. When possible, please refrain from serving food at troop meetings. If food must be served, please do so outdoors with proper social distancing. 

MASKS (Outdoor) - Masks must be worn outdoors in situations where proper social distancing cannot be achieved. The meeting leader or facilitator is authorized to determine when girls and adults should wear masks during outdoor activities. Additionally, if a girl or adult volunteer feels more comfortable in a mask, that decision should be respected and supported.
