NBC Universal, Inc.

Summer camp has been cut short for some Bay Area Boy Scouts after a COVID-19 case was reported at the Wente Scout Reservation in the Mendocino National Forest.

The site is about 30 miles north of Ukiah.

The local Boy Scout chapter released a statement saying in part, "In addition to our existing COVID-19 protocols, we are disinfecting camp facilities and implementing additional testing for all employees prior to our next camp session.”

In the same statement, the chapter explained they "conducted contact tracing and quarantined unvaccinated individuals who were in close contact with this person per CDC guidance. When we learned of an additional positive test from this quarantined group, we decided to cancel the reminder of this week’s session out of an abundance of caution. All registrants will receive a full refund."

The camp plans to “safely reopen” on August 1.
