Current Northern Star Council Covid-19-Mitigation Guidelines

 

https://www.northernstar.org/news/enavigator/covid19-and-northern-star-camps-meetings-more

3/4/2022 Update: The Centers for Disease Control and the Minnesota Department of Health have issued new guidelines for COVID-19 prevention measures.
 

Using revised criteria, the CDC is now classifying each county as having Low, Medium or High COVID-19 Community Levels. Visit CDC: COVID-19 by County to assess your county’s status and learn about appropriate prevention measures.

 

As most of the counties we serve are now classified at either low or medium levels, we will no longer require universal mask usage while indoors. Instead, we ask that you continue to consult the CDC and adjust your activities and prevention measures accordingly.

General Expectations

  • Individuals may choose to continue wearing masks even when it is not required, especially those who are, or live with, individuals who are at high risk.

    • Surgical or N95/KN95 masks are preferred over cloth masks.

  • Individuals experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and close contacts must still follow state guidelines for testing and isolation.

  • Continue to use the health-screening checklist prior to attending Scout functions.

  • Some local and community orders may supersede this guidance.

  • Vaccines are strongly encouraged for all who are eligible.

  • Proper hand washing and increased sanitation continue to be important tools to prevent spread of illness.
