  • Leaders, be in contact with your Charter Partner as restrictions maybe in place regarding the facility you partner with. 
     
  • Unit Committee's and Unit Leaders, continue to evaluate upcoming schedules and plan accordingly by referencing the guidelines through your local and state authorities.  Use the above helpful documents.   
     
  • As always, participation in Scouting activities is up to the discretion of parents and guardians and unit leaders. For the protection of the community, please follow State Department of Health and CDC guidance to ensure Scouts and adults stay home when sick and do not attend Scouting or other activities.
     
  • If you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19, or if you believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, you should isolate and not attend any Scouting events.  People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider immediately. 

2.  Minsi Trails Council Service Center

  • In compliance with Pennsylvania’s recent updates to the COVID-19 guidelines, the Minsi Trails Council Service Center will be open on a limited, as needed basis. For the health and wellness of our Scout families, volunteers, and staff, we ask that you visit us only when deemed absolutely necessary. 

    As of 5/15/2021, Minsi Trails Council continues to evaluate the most recent CDC guidelines and PA Dept. of Health recommendations for businesses and will post any changes to the MTC Service Center here. 

  • If you need to come visit us for service center related business, wear your mask and follow the guidelines we have set forth when entering.  But if you can continue to take care of your Scouting business remotely, please continue to do so for now.  

    • As a reminder, we will be asking everyone to sign in, require a mask, practice 6 feet social distancing, and follow exiting protocols.

    • The Minsi Trails Council is taking this action in accordance with local and state authorities as well as the Scout Oath and Law. The safety of our Scouting family is our highest priority.
