The safety of our community is the top priority of The Ohio State University (OSU). Governor DeWine issued a state of emergency and implemented a variety of strategies to reduce the spread of COVID-19. In keeping with those directives and strategies, OSU implemented a telework plan for all county Extension offices. In addition to cancelling and/or postponing any meetings, events, and programs that included face-to-face contact, OSU implemented the use of virtual meetings and educational programming whenever possible. As a further measure to reduce the risk of exposure to, the possible transmission of, and to slow the spread of COVID-19, OSU physically closed all county Extension offices throughout the state effective at 4:00 p.m., March 17.
We would like to announce that our office has received permission from OSU to reopen to the public effective July 7 with limited hours by appointment only. Please see our news release regarding this announcement.
When Extension personnel are not in the county office, we will continue to telework. Communication via email will be in place. (See our About/County Staff page for email addresses.) Continue to check this website for updates regarding current information and educational efforts.
Check the following pages for specific programming altered by COVID-19 and for additional resources to help during this unprecedented time. Please note that all previously planned programming for this year has either been cancelled, postponed, or will be held virtually.
For more COVID-19 resources, see the COVID-19 Hub link at the top of this page.
Thank you for your patience during this period.
