GSLAC is relaxing the suspension of face-to-face Scout meetings and activities under certain requirements:
- All local and state governments, both where the unit is chartered and where the meeting or activity is to take place must clearly permit the activity in terms of gathering size and ability to maintain proper social distancing. All of their and the Federal CDC guidelines must be followed for all phases of the meeting or activity (such as feeding, housing/tents, swimming etc.).
- Chartered organizations must approve in person activities and/or meetings prior to restoring them. Units should also consult with their chartered organization to determine the best path forward for the unit’s Scouting programs.
- Parents should be surveyed and a majority of the parents in the Scouting unit must approve restoring in person activities.
- All meetings and activities are to take place outdoors.

Eagle Extension: Scouts will need to download Extension Request COVID-19 Form to file for an extension. Once the form is completed they will need to email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the form is turned into the council office we will send out the form for district advancement chairs and the council advancement chair to approve.

They will need to bring this letter to the council office when they turn in their Eagle application. All applications should be submitted prior to the scout’s 18th birthday.
