Parents and Scouts,

The Parents Committee met tonight at Rand.  After a lengthy discussion, which included input from the troop doctors, there was a strong consensus that it would not be prudent to run our campout this weekend.  Part of the discussion was that this campout uniquely exposes our Scouts to the city of Solvang, where they would be out and about for a couple of hours, risking transmission of the coronavirus.  We cannot ignore the advice of our medical professionals that this would be unwise.

We are currently planning to continue troop meetings as long as Santa Monica schools remain in session.  The thought is that the risk of infection is no greater than the risk of being in school every day.  However, we will be taking precautions, such as having everybody sanitize hands and maintaining more distance than usual.  It goes without saying that if a Scout exhibits symptoms, he should not attend.

We will continue to assess the situation and listen to the experts in planning for future events.

Steve Marcy
