Governor DeWine recently issued a state of emergency and implemented a variety of strategies to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus disease.

In order to do our part in reducing risk to our employees or clientele, we have implemented a teleworking plan. OSU Extension offices will be closed to the public until further notice. While our offices will be physically closed, we are committed to continuing to conduct our work as fully as possible. In recent years, we’ve invested in the technology needed to facilitate effective teleworking. We will utilize all our teleworking capabilities to continue serving our clientele and communities. You should continue to feel free to call, email, etc. with any OSU Extension staff member as you normally would.

OSU Extension is deeply committed to the health and well-being of its staff and doing our part to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Click Here for the updated official letter from OSU Extension and more information regaurding the closures. (Letter from March 18, 2020)

As a result of the University’s response to COVID-19, and to do our part in keeping our community healthy, all face-to-face programming is to be cancelled/postponed until July 6th, 2020
