Coronavirus Update - 7/27/2021

 

For All Narragansett Council Units – Guidelines for Unit Activities:

  • Units are no longer required to collect and maintain contract tracing information. However, contact tracing remains an important approach to limiting spread of COVID-19 when positive cases arise. It is smart to know who is participating at your events and meetings.
  • Meeting outdoors is still preferred.
  • Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask unless required to do so by the meeting location.
  • Non-vaccinated individuals should wear a mask when three feet of social distancing cannot be maintained outdoors and at all times when indoors.
  • You are not considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after your final dose.
  • In Massachusetts, all youth under 18 do not need to wear a mask outdoors. Unvaccinated children should wear masks indoors. After consultation with the MA COVID Command Center’s Medical Advisory Board, Governor Baker announced that given the low rate of outdoor transmission of COVID-19, youth no longer have to wear masks when outdoors, even if distance cannot be maintained. This guidance update applies to recess, physical education, youth sports, and outdoor learning environments.
     
  • However, the CDC is recommending that fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission, which includes Bristol County, Massachusetts.
  • In Rhode Island, a face covering is no longer required outdoors for those who are vaccinated and unvaccinated in all age groups. However, individuals who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear masks in crowded outdoor settings and during activities that involve sustained close contact (less than 6 feet apart for more than 15 minutes over a 24-hour period) with other people who are not fully vaccinated. Indoors, nonvaccinated individuals who participate in activities where three feet of physical distancing cannot easily, continuously, and measurably be maintained, must still wear a face covering.
  • In alignment with state guidance, the gathering limits for outdoor events will be lifted.
  • Businesses and organizations have the authority to establish and implement policies regarding face masks, spacing or other measures that are more restrictive than the state rules. Please be respectful and follow their rules.

 

Weekend Camping Guidance:

Camp Norse and Camp Cachalot are licensed youth camps in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and requirements issued by the local Departments of Health must be followed. At this time, the Departments of Health in Kingston (Norse) and Plymouth (Cachalot) have approved for us to reopen. Norse remains closed for unit weekend camping due to our Family Camp program, but Cachalot is now open for weekend camping.  

We have not received the special use permit that is required for us to operate Camp Sandsland on Block Island—we expect to be able to open Sandsland in July. Please check our reservation system at NCBSA.org for availability.

Summer Camp Guidance: Each summer camp will have its own specific guidance that follows all CDC, state, and local regulations. Details will be communicated to those attending before camp and can also be found at yawgoog.org for Yawgoog Scout Reservation and at adventurebasecamp.org for Camp Champlin/Adventure Base Camp.
