Unit/District/Council Meetings and Events:
We encourage you to postpone meetings or switch to virtual gatherings utilizing conference calls or online video conferencing. Keep in close contact with your unit and district leadership to understand what has been postponed or shifted online.  Please consider ways you can move Scouting forward by using technology.

In the coming days we will send an additional communication with fun ways for families to continue their Scouting journey while children are not in school and unable to meet together. Many achievements can be earned at home.

We will continue to monitor governmental guidelines and update you via e-mail and on our website, AtlantaBSA.org/safety-health. Please check this site regularly for updates.

Please also familiarize yourself with the CDC guidelines on how to limit the spread of the virus, here at the CDC's Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Communities .

If you have questions about District or Council events happening in your area please contact your District Professional . For unit meetings, please continue to work directly with your unit leadership and charter organization.

The safety of our Scouts, Leaders, Parents, and Staff is our number one priority. As your Safe Scouting Directors, we thank you for your leadership and dedication to helping keep our community safe.
