Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada will begin allowing in-person gatherings to resume effective January 20, 2021. It is the responsibility of the Troop Leaders and Volunteers to follow and abide by their current local/county pandemic guidelines. GSSN makes every effort to keep up-to-date with the latest updates and will adjust our decision on in-person gatherings as necessary. GSSN requires that ALL participants (Girl Scouts, Troop Leaders, Volunteers, Parents) at in-person meetings and cookie sales (door-to-door and cookie booths) MUST wear a mask at all times, indoors and outdoors, and practice social distancing. Please read the reopening plan (click here) which contains waivers and forms that must be signed prior to meeting in-person. The continued health and safety of our council members is our #1 priority. We appreciate your continued support and understanding during this unprecedented time.
The GSSN Shop is now open at 25% capacity (one shopper at a time.) Click here to view shop hours.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to change as infection rates rise and fall in different areas. Continue to follow local and national directives. Discuss plans with families and continue to check the GSSN COVID-19 page as we will update it as circumstances change. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns.
