  1. In our area there are few backyards and certainly no one has swimming pools. Most scouts live in apartments in Elmhurst ,NY. All pools are closed now. In the best of times it is hard to find a pool where swim tests can be administered. Many boys have to be taught to swim before they can take a test. We use a college pool to teach but it is closed now because of Covid-19 with no opening date in sight. We still cannot camp overnight in N.Y.S. College life guard does not allow us to do rescues in pool. He does not even like scouts to jump into pool except at far end. These things sometimes have to wait to summer camp each year and with summer camp cancelled these tests were impossible tod do and scouts who had to learn to swim were denied the opportunity. We were going to be at summer camp with 16-18 scouts for 2 weeks.
