Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates 

The leadership of the Bay Area Council (BAC) has the health and safety of all Scouts, their families, staff, and the public as its highest priority and concern. Since March 2020, the BAC COVID-19 Risk Assessment Team has monitored the pandemic and CDC protocols to determine how BAC should operate during this pandemic. This document provides the current COVID protocols for all BAC Scouting activities (both in-person meetings and camping) as of June 28, 2021, until further notice.

Camp Karankawa (Camp K) Outdoor Protocols. While attending Camp K outdoors, masks are not mandated. All participants are encouraged to maintain safe distancing. Hand washing is encouraged, and hand sanitizers are to be available and placed for both participant and staff use. When outdoor activities places participants within two arms-length of each other, masks should be worn. (An example is use of the shooting ranges.) Masks should not be worn in the swimming pool.

Camp Karankawa Indoor Protocols. While attending Camp K and indoors, all participants are required to wear masks. If the participants are eating or drinking masks may be removed until finished eating and/or drinking. This does not mean that one can simply walk around holding a drink and not wearing a mask. Masks are also not required if participants are distanced 6+ feet apart. Hand washing is encouraged, and hand sanitizers are to be available and placed for both participant and staff use.  

In-person Meetings.  While meeting at indoor in-person activities in BAC, all participates are required to wear a mask. If the participants are eating or drinking, then masks are allowed to be removed until finished eating and/or drinking. This does not mean that one can simply walk around holding a drink and not wearing a mask. Masks are also not required if participants are distanced 6+ feet apart. Hand washing is encouraged, and hand sanitizers are to be available and placed for both participant and staff use.
