There has been a recent confirmation of the coronavirus in the state of Ohio leading to public health concerns related to disease transmission. As a result, The Ohio State University has been proactively implementing protocols for insuring the safety and health for our students and clientele.  After consultation with the college and university leadership, most OSU Extension programs will be either postponed and rescheduled or cancelled. We are following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, Ohio Department of Health, and the university in being aggressively proactive to prevent the potential spread of communicable respiratory illness.

We understand this may cause an inconvenience to you, but please know that your health and the health of our community at-large is our biggest priority. We will be postponing or cancelling gatherings, face-to-face programming, and meetings through July 6 to provide time for additional vigilance as we learn more about how this virus is affecting Ohioans.
