With the recent update from the governor of Illinois, Girl Scouts will continue to update in-person guidelines provided by the State of Illinois and the official Coronavirus Response team. With the most recent update, some areas will be allowed to start meeting in person again. The Girl Scout council is included in the setting named “meetings, events and gatherings (excluding in-person school or sports)" on the Restore Illinois Mitigation Plan website. Please follow the tiered mitigation schedule to find guidelines for the region where your troop meets. Our council's jurisdiction falls within Regions 3, 4, 5 and 6. See the State of Illinois' Coronavirus Response region map.
