Restart Scouting - A Checklist from National

Posted on Jul 4 2020 - 10:56pm

The national office of Boy Scouts of America has put together a comprehensive checklist to use when restarting scouting. The checklist outlines several minimum protocols that adult leaders must consider while working with our local and state health departments, our local council, our Chartered Organizations, and our families to determine when and how to resume scout meetings, service projects, camping, and all other official Scouting activities. National's message is this: if it is not practical to meet these minimal protocols, do not restart in-person activities! The checklist uses the acronym S A F E to highlight several areas of focus: S = Supervision; A = Assessment; F = Fitness and Skill; and E = Equipment and Environment. The checklist is attached to this announcement, but is also available at https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-693.pdf. A companion pre-screening tool is also attached and available at https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-057.pdf.
