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, 2020.
We would like to announce that our office has received permission from OSU to reopen to the public effective February 8, 2021, with limited hours. Please click here to see our news release regarding this announcement.
Extension employees continue to telework when they are not in the county office. We are following strict guidelines to remain safe and to keep our clientele safe as well. All service sector requirements for general office environemnts from the Ohio Department of Health will be strictly adhered to in each office. 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.
