  5. 4-H COVID-19 UPDATE (4/7/2020)

    Apr. 09, 2020

    Dear 4-H members, families, volunteers, and supporters,

    It is with a heavy heart that I share this news with you. Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to cancel all Ohio State University Extension in-person programming through July 6. 

    This includes all 4-H programs, activities, and events. Additionally, we’ve made the very difficult decision to cancel all 4-H camps through August 31. 

    Although in-person programming is canceled, we will continue to offer virtual 4-H experiences.

    As you may already be aware, The Ohio State University has announced the suspension of face-to-face instruction of lectures, seminars, and other similar classroom settings, and the move to virtual instruction effective immediately and through at least Monday, March 30. Also, events deemed nonessential between now and April 20 are subject to review, to evaluate whether they should continue in person.
