4-H Club Meetings Update

As we received word of the restart guidance from the governor’s office around recreation and outdoor activities, and most recently the fair guidance, we have approached our university leadership for an exemption for club meetings for those clubs participating in various in-person junior fair activities. We are currently in discussions with university leadership to determine a path forward. All approvals of this exemption will require a variety of guidelines that must be adhered to by each club (in alignment with ODH and CDC guidance), training for volunteers, and a form of attestation that these guidelines will be followed to ensure the safety of our youth and volunteers. I will be in touch soon as to the university decision, anticipated early next week.
