Coronavirus Update March 25, 2021

Greater Tampa Bay Area Council
Boy Scouts of America
Roadmap to Program Resumption
Update # 11

The Council COVID-19 Response Committee met virtually on March 25, 2021 to review the current status within the Council and to make necessary adjustments to the Council’s posture during this continued pandemic. Existing infection trends across the Council’s counties and national, state, and regional lessons learned were considered.  We remain convinced that our prudent way forward best serves our Scouts, Leaders, and their families.  Thanks to the diligent efforts of all participants, we are continuing to offer safe program opportunities for the youth of the Greater Tampa Bay Area.

The Committee believes that the current science supports adjustments in our way forward.

Effective upon release of this document the following moderate adjustment will be made to our protocols on a trial basis:

The requirement to take and record temperatures will be suspended for all outside Council and District events.  All other protocols remain in effect.

The Committee continues to monitor the current situation daily and will reconsider existing guidelines at its May 2021 meeting.  Until then it is important to note our Roadmap forward remains fluid and subject to change dependent upon exigent circumstances.  As always, we will provide updates as they occur.

Please be assured that the safety of all our Scouting Family is our primary concern.
