OSU Extension In-Person Programming Suspended until May 15th

The deadline for in-person programming for all Ohio State University Extension programming has been extended from April 20th to May 15th. 

As you may be aware, The Ohio State University announced the suspension of face-to-face instruction and the move to virtual instruction for the remainder of the semester. Events deemed nonessential are postponed between now and at least May 15, 2020. Based on these guidelines, all in-person meetings of Extension groups including but not limited to 4-H clubs, committees, and advisory groups, are postponed or canceled until at least May 15. Activities are encouraged to continue virtually when possible.

These actions are in alignment with necessary precautions recommended by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Ohio Department of Health.

Thank you for your patience with our county OSU Extension Staff, state 4-H Office and state Extension leadership as we navigate the process. Although this has caused a disruption, all Extension professionals are still working remotely, and many 4-H club members are working on their projects. We’re committed to doing our part to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. We also know that when we choose to act together, we can have incredible positive impacts.
