Girl Scout Parents Must Sign Covid Waiver Before In-Person Events
At least some Girl Scouts do things a little differently during the pandemic – little girls can still participate in person – but their parents must first sign a COVID-19 waiver … and recognize that the virus could lead to death.
TMZ has learned that Girl Scouts in northern Illinois are requiring parents and guardians to sign a special waiver so girls can attend events in person.
According to the waiver, obtained by TMZ, the document is designed to protect the Girl Scout organization from legal liability if a child or parent becomes ill and / or dies from COVID-19 while participating in GS activities.
Girl Scouts in northern Illinois tell TMZ … that in-person troop meetings, rallies, and activities are NOT necessary for girls to participate in Girl Scouts, but the waiver is needed for small groups who prefer to meet in real life.
If parents and guardians are reluctant to sign a waiver and send their child to an in-person event amid a raging pandemic, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois tells us they offer a variety of programs and means to girls to connect and experience the Girl Scout leadership experience online in a non-contact environment.
We reached out to Girl Scouts of America to see how many branches are using similar waivers … so far no word in return.
You might want to start mentally preparing for a Girl Scout Cookie season like you’ve never experienced.
