The safety of our community is the top priority of The Ohio State University (OSU). Recently 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 has 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 is implementing 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 is physically closing all county Extension offices throughout the state effective at 4:00 p.m., March 17. Offices will remain closed until further notice.

Tuscarawas County Extension personnel will be working remotely from their homes during this temporary closure. Communication via email will be in place. (See our About/County Staff tab 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 programming planned until July 6 has been cancelled.
