As Scouting moves to virtual and online platforms, we offer the following reminders to help keep kids safe. Virtual scout meetings provide an opportunity to connect with other scouts and scout leaders during our COVID-19 SIP (shelter in place). These meetings can provide a sense of normalcy and structure during this challenging times. MDSC has some suggestions for virtual meetings for Scouting. The below guidance applies to all online Scouting activities and meetings.

Recharging Your Cyber Chip
All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to go to Netsmartz and complete 2 new resources to recommit to net safety and netiquette. Then, with the unit leader, the Scout can add the new date to the Cyber Chip card or certificate.
