At Camp La-No-Che, we are committed to helping keep your Scouts and families healthy and safe while at camp. Part of that promise is providing guidance and resources to you to make informed decisions as you prepare for camp, while you participate at camp, and as you complete your camping experience.
As always, your safety and the safety of all our members, volunteers, and employees is our top priority. We know there are questions and concerns about how COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus, could affect local Scouting programs in the Central Florida Council. Please know that we are monitoring developments regarding COVID-19 both locally with our Council Health Supervisor (Note: please engage your CHS if you have not) and through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

BSA and Council Policies to Prevent the Spread of Illness
The Boy Scouts of America and Central Florida Council continues to have policies and procedures in place that help protect participants from contracting an illness at large Scouting events. These include the Annual Health and Medical Record and the Pre-Event Medical Screening Checklist. IT IS ADVISED THAT ALL GROUPS ATTENDING CAMP REVIEW THIS CHECKLIST WITH ALL PARTICIPANTS AND BRING A SIGNED COPY WITH THEM TO CAMP TO PRESENT AT CHECK IN.
Everyday Preventive Measures
Even with those important policies in place, it is critical that we all take these everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:
- Stay home when you feel sick.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and wash your hands before and after doing so.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve/elbow, not your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Do not share personal items such as cups, water bottles, eating utensils, etc.
- Avoid shaking 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. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
If you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19, or if you believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, you should isolate and not attend any Scouting events. People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
Should you have any questions or concerns about a specific upcoming event or activity, please reach out to your local district executive. We will do everything we can to answer your question using the information available to us.
