COVID-19: Working Together to Keep Our Girl Scout Community Healthy


The health and wellbeing of our girls, volunteers, and staff are Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska’s top priorities, and we are monitoring and assessing the latest developments of COVID-19 (coronavirus) across the state. We encourage you to check back here frequently for updates.


March 23

COVID-19 Policy Changes:

Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska continues to closely monitor and align to the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control and the Department of Health and Human Services. Much has changed over the last few months, including vaccine availability for youth, changes to the CDC’s isolation guidance, and lifting of mask mandates by many school districts. These changes have led us to update our policies and guidelines.  

Effective March 2022, masks are no longer required at Service Centers, Juliette’s Boutiques, or camp properties. Masks are encouraged, but no longer required, for most council-sponsored programs.

In addition, all other in-person meeting guidelines have been lifted. We trust you to make the best decision for your families and troops, allowing you to choose whether to wear a mask based on your individual needs and personal situations.

Because the council covers 92 counties, you should be familiar with your community’s restrictions and follow your school district’s guidance when applicable. Please follow those guidelines if they are more stringent.

Additionally, if you are using another location to host a meeting or event, you must follow any rules and guidelines set for the property.

Please note that as CDC guidelines change, our policies also will change. When in doubt or if you are looking for more details, please visit the CDC and DHHS websites. 

Council-Sponsored Program Guidelines:

As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation across the state, we want to remind you of what we are doing to keep everyone safe.

For all indoor, in-person programs, Girl Scouts, volunteers, and staff members are encouraged to wear masks.

We also want to remind participants that they should not attend in-person programs if they are not feeling well, have COVID-19, or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19.

Because the virus situation is constantly changing and safety remains our top priority, we will update guidelines as needed.

Keep in mind that Girl Scout programs are planned far in advance and often require a financial investment by the council. If you are registered for a program and are considering canceling, please be aware of the program’s cancellation deadline. After the cancellation date, refunds may not be available if council funds have been spent.
