At Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma, there is nothing we take more seriously than the safety and well-being of our girls, volunteers, and council staff. We share your growing concern about the spread of COVID-19 in eastern Oklahoma and will take all appropriate measures to ensure girls continue to have a safe, fun, one-of-a-kind experience at Girl Scouts.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma strives to be a reliable resource for our members by providing accurate, timely, and accessible information. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 updates from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the local public health departments for each of the 30 counties within our council boundaries.
For accurate information and important updates on the prevention, spread, and treatment of COVID-19, we recommend that our members:
- Regularly visit The Centers for Disease Control website for updated information on preventative measures when out in public.
- Reference their local health department’s website for information on the spread of COVID-19 in their area.
- Frequent GSEOK’s council website for information on preventative measures and council action.
At this time, all GSEOK council-sponsored events, programs and facility reservations are operating as normal except for the Harlem Globetrotter event which has been postponed. We are paying close attention to local guidance around school closures. At this point Governor Stitt is recommending that schools remain open. Per the CDC, children have not been shown to be a high-risk group for serious illness from this virus. As much as possible, children should be allowed to carry on with their education and normal activities.
With the uncertainty in the news reports, Girl Scouts of USA has published an article: How to Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus. This article’s dos and don’ts will help you stay on track in your communications about COVID-19.
Be Prepared! Minimize Your Risk
The CDC has shared the following things you can do to minimize your risk of contracting any virus:
- Stay home when you are not feeling well.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
We understand that making decisions in a rapidly evolving environment can be overwhelming. GSEOK encourages our volunteers and caregivers to use their best judgement when determining whether to hold troop meetings or attend Girl Scout events. If your troop has a service project that involves a facility with persons with weakened immune systems such as a hospital or nursing home, you may want to consider postponing the event, or at a minimum contacting the facility to determine whether they are allowing outside groups to enter.
