On December 2, New Mexico transitioned to a tiered (red, yellow,
green) county-by-county COVID-19 system that enables counties to ease
restrictions as the spread of the virus is successfully slowed in
local communities per the most recent New Mexico Public Health
Under this new tiered system, our Albuquerque Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails office and La Tienda re-opened with limited capacity and staff at that time. Most of our staff continues to work remotely, and we strongly encourage our members to stay home, communicate virtually, and arrange for any needed materials to be mailed or pre-ordered and picked up at La Tienda or the front desk to help mitigate potential spread.
Per the New Mexico Department of Health Public Health Order, as
counties move from red to yellow to green, restrictions become more
flexible. As such, Girl
Scout activities for in-person gatherings may occur as long as these
gatherings stay within the Mass Gathering Limits assigned to each
If your county is red,
then gatherings must be limited to 5 people (for Girl Scouts, this
means “pods” of 2 adults/3 girls) in order to ensure a 5 person
limit. If your county is yellow, then gatherings must be limited to
10 people (for Girl Scouts, this means “pods” of 2 adults/8 girls).
Please reference the Red to Green framework at
for additional information.
Please remember that in order to meet in-person, Troops/Service
Units must complete the Activity Notification Form which can be found
on our council website at https://www.nmgirlscouts.org/en/for-volunteers/volunteer-resources/forms---documents/activity---money-earning-notification-form.html.
This form must be received 5 days before the in-person gathering so
that your Regional Manager can approve the request. Additionally, the
COVID Pre-Screening Questionnaire should be
completed by each participant to ensure the health of each girl or
adult present. This form will be retained by the Troop/Service Unit
and will only need to be returned to the Regional Manager if a
question is answered in the affirmative.
We are all in this together and we cannot thank you enough for your patience and understanding as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of all girls, volunteers, and staff during this difficult time.
