Here is new information the Pikes Peak BSA Website. All registered users should have received this email. Note that camping activities are not effected by this order-just saying.
|Dear Scouting Family,|
Effective 23 October 2020 The State of Colorado released an amended health order that limits public and private gatherings for any county in any level of safer at home. It excludes counties that did transition to protect your neighbor (Counties in Pikes Peak Council NOT one of them). The amended limit is in the order, paragraph II.B.2.a.
“Public and private gatherings are limited to no more than 25 individuals when not otherwise regulated as a specific sector or activity in Section III of this Order; except that effective October 23, 2020 gatherings in this level are reduced to no more than 10 individuals from no more than 2 households. Nothing in this Order prohibits the gathering of members living in the same residence.”
How this affects your unit:
Effective with this order and until the new limit is rescinded, no in-person unit meetings should be held and all Unit meetings should only be conducted using an online forum.
For camping activities, the limits were not amended in the order. Paragraph II.B.2.p outlines those limits “Children’s Day Camps, Residential Camps, Youth Sports Day Camps and Exempt Single Skill-Building Youth Camps may be conducted with no more than 25 participants indoors and 50 participants outdoors.”
How this affects your unit campouts:
Unit leadership should continue to monitor state and county health sites for the most current information and potential changes, then exercise sound judgment for adapting or cancelling unit events.Ensure family transportation to/from outing location (no unit carpooling)Maximization of outdoor activitiesIndividually prepared meals andIndividual tent use for outings.Units with scheduled outings at Glen Aspen or Camp Alexander can continue as planned.Mandatory mask usageMinimum 6’ social distancing at all times
The planned structure for both the Trunk or Treat and the Drive-in Movie Night Council events are within the guidelines of the new order and will continue as planned. Other Council/district events will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
