UCANR Staff will be working from home during this period, so all UCANR Offices will be closed through April 7. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to the 4-H staff you usually work with via email.
As you know our offices are in touch with local and state governments, but we’re also under the larger umbrella of University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Following UC-wide protocols, all UC ANR-hosted meetings, events and gatherings of ANY SIZE that are scheduled to take place through April 7, 2020 must be conducted via Zoom, postponed or cancelled.
This includes all in-person programming, meetings and gatherings - whether led by UC ANR employees or volunteers (e.g., 4-H club or project meetings, Master Gardener workshops, Master Food Preserver classes, and Nutrition Education programs, etc.). It also includes program activity being conducted as part of an agreement (MOU) with a partner agency.
In addition, UC guidance further extends the date of this directive to April 30 for UC-hosted in-person meetings or events of 50 participants or more.
Please know with the changing situation, both these dates are subject to be extended.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
