Use BSA Neckerchief to Help Stop Spread of Virus


The CDC recommends the use of cloth face coverings in community settings to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 based on the following reasoning:

  • There is a growing body of evidence that people who are infected can spread the virus before they develop symptoms or in the absence of symptoms.
  • Wearing a cloth face covering may help prevent the spread of the virus by people who are infected and do not know it.

In addition to the CDC recommendation, Gov. Phil Murphy announced that he is now requiring all employees and shoppers at the essential businesses still open in New Jersey to wear face coverings until further notice to help fight the coronavirus outbreak.

We would like to take this opportunity to encourage all our members to use the BSA neckerchief for this purpose.  You can demonstrate Scout preparedness and pride while satisfying the requirement.
