Friends of Israel Scouts (Tzofim) and the Shvatim have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, The Tzofim and the Shvatim cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, participation in the Tzofim and the Shvatim meetings and activities could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19.
