Scouts BSA, Venturing and Sea Scouting from a Distance

Masks and Vaccine Mandates

There is currently a state wide mask mandate in place for public areas, regardless of vaccination status.  Be sure to keep up to date on the latest announcements regarding when people are required to wear a mask.  

King County has also issued a mandate requiring certain venues to check for proof of vaccination in order to allow entry.  If you are in King County and meeting inside, make sure you check with the owner of your meeting place to see if they will require you to show proof of vaccination.  


Vaccines will be essential in helping us safely put the outing back in scouting.  Everyone ages 12 and older are approved to get the vaccine now, and kids under the age of 12 should be approved to get their vaccines soon!  To get schedule a vaccine appointment, you can call your local pharmacy, your doctor, or use these links:
