Keeping with the communications received from the School District, Scouts BSA, the County health department and our Troop’s health and safety in mind, all Troop events and activities are canceled till end of Spring break – Apr 10th. We will be assessing the situation at the end of March and keep you informed of when we will resume as a Troop to have meetings and events.

Keeping your safety in mind, it is recommended that you postpone your events/meetings until advised.

These are postponed as of now to April 2020; please stay tuned for further communication on this.
What about the Mar 30th COH?
This event is also canceled; the new date for the next COH will be announced.
The current leadership term is ending in April. Will this jeopardize my leadership term?
No, your record is being kept track of on the website. Please track your activities on the leadership form and meet with your mentors for any questions.
What about Eagle projects that have been scheduled?
Scouts who are working on their Eagle projects will be advised by their Eagle advisors on next steps and will continue to work under their guidance.
Can you please remind me of how to stay healthy and safe in this situation?
The best ways for all Contra Costa residents to reduce their risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 are:
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Cover coughs or sneezes with disposable tissue or the crook of an elbow
  • Stay home from school or work when you are sick
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us.
Thank you for listening,
Yours in Scouting,
