Covid-19 In-Person Cookie Program Guidance

As our most publicly visible activity, the Girl Scout Cookie Program provides us with a unique opportunity to model leadership by doing our part in reducing community transmission of COVID-19. In addition to understanding and following this guidance, girls and adults should model Girl Scout Law behavior at all times, while representing Girl Scouts during any Cookie Program activities. Ultimately, we are all responsible to the girls, to each other and to the public. 

We will update our COVID-19 guidelines for cookie sales before the start of the  2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program. In the meantime, you can see our latest guidance here.

Cookie Program Emails

Cookie managers will typically receive bi-weekly cookie program emails. Holidays may affect this schedule. Occassionaly we will send program emails to participating families as well. If you are a registered cookie manager and have not received these emails, please ensure you are opted in to GSHCC emails and that emails are not going to spam. We recommend you add to your safe senders list.
