Covid Update #24

Posted on Mar 7 2022 - 1:22pm

Update #24

March 4, 2022

Earlier this week, Governor Newsom announced that due to declining COVID-19 cases and decreased hospitalizations, California would adopt new indoor mask policies for K-12 schools. In particular, the state will move from “requiring” students to wear masks indoors to “strongly recommending”.
 
As a result, as of March 12, 2022, unless required by a chartering organization or other local regulations. OCBSA will not require that masks be worn at OCBSA scouting activities, but the option to wear a mask ultimately is the choice of the individual. OCBSA is aligning with the California guidance and “strongly recommending” that masks be worn at OCBSA scouting activities.
  
As a youth organization Orange County Council, BSA has been and will continue to follow the guidance for K-12 schools throughout the pandemic as it relates to participation in our programs.
 
As always, thank you for your partnership, flexibility, and patience as we navigate this challenging and unprecedented chapter in our lives.
 
For any further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the COVID helpline by email at covid@ocbsa.org

COVID Advancement Modifications Ending

Posted on Feb 14 2022 - 7:06pm

Scoutmasters and Advancement Teams

Please make sure your Scouts and leaders are aware of this update.

Early on during COVID lockdowns, BSA implemented a series of temporary modifications to advancement requirements to accommodate the pandemic responses.  

Effective March 01, 2022, those modifications will be removed, and the standard rules for advancement and merit badges will again become effective.

If you have any questions about the information, please contact Dave Klein, Saddleback District Advancement Chair at kleinds@gmail.com

A list of the specific advancement requirements modifications which are now expiring effective March 01, 2022 is available here.

The following FAQs are copied from the BSA's national COVID FAQ webpage

 

Q: When will the current COVID-19 modifications to rank requirements and merit badge requirements end?

As always, the BSA’s top priority is the health and safety of all youth participating in BSA programs. In 2020, the BSA instituted several modifications to rank requirements and merit badge requirements (“advancement modifications”) to accommodate activity restrictions necessitated by COVID-19. Effective March 01, 2022, those modifications will be removed, and the standard rules for advancement and merit badges will again become effective.

Q: Will there be any changes to the Swimming requirements for Second and First class?

As of March 01, 2022, the temporary changes to the Swimming requirements will be removed, and the original requirements as published will be reinstated.

Q: Do I still need to take a swim test for aquatic activities since there is a deferment in place?

The deferment was for rank requirements Second Class(5b) and First Class(6A). Aquatic activities require a current and valid swim testing for both Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat. Starting March 01, 2022, temporary changes to the Swimming requirements for rank advancement will be removed, and the original requirements as published will be reinstated.

Q: Will there be any changes to the Swimming requirements for Sea Scout Ranks?

As of March 01, 2022, the temporary changes to the Swimming requirements will be removed, and the original requirements as published will be reinstated.

Q: Will there be any changes for Scouts who cannot complete the camping merit badge?

As of March 01, 2022, the temporary suspension of requirement 9b of the camping merit will be removed, and the original requirements as published will be reinstated.

Q: What changes have been made to rank advancement/camping requirements given the need to maintain social distancing during this time?

Temporary changes were implemented to allow Scouts to complete rank requirements by video conferencing, as well as changes to the Camping merit badge and some swimming rank requirements; see https://www.scouting.org/program-updates/covid-19-2020-advancement-temporary-changes. All of these temporary COVID accommodations will expire on March 01, 2022.
