Working Together to Keep Our Girl Scout Community Safe!
The COVID-19 protocols at Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast are changing rapidly in response to available information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), county guidelines and other important sources. As Girl Scouts, we have an obligation to our community to do all that we can to limit the spread of coronavirus and keep our girls safe. See how we are responding to these changing circumstances below.
Girl Scouts is here to stay! You can find at-home programming updates here.
The Cookie Program
As you know, the start of this year’s cookie program coincides with the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic in our council’s footprint. For the better part of a year, our team at Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast has been preparing for what this program might look like in such a unique time. Outlined below we have crafted a series of guidelines for this year’s cookie program within each stage of the pandemic to ensure our girls have the fullest experience possible, while keeping the health and safety of girls, volunteers, staff, and the community our top priority.
Door-to-Door Contactless Marketing

Deliveries and Product Distribution
We all need to be accountable and responsible to the girls, to each other and to the public. If we all follow these guidelines, each person pursues only those activities they feel comfortable with, and we all remain diligent about personal and public safety, our girls will have a fun and successful 2021 Cookie Season!

GSCCC COVID guidance may result in removal from the 2021 Girl Scout
