The public health crisis presented by COVID-19 continues to present uncertainties for individuals, families, and businesses across our state. Rutgers Cooperative Extension—and all of us at the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station—are dedicated to serving the needs of our state during this time of crisis and economic disruption. At the same time, we all must also do our part to help reduce community transmission of COVID-19.
To help protect the health of Cooperative Extension personnel and all of those we serve:
- Rutgers Cooperative Extension county offices are currently operating with limited or no public access; however, our faculty and staff are working—either in our offices or remotely—and remain available to you. Please check your county extension office website for up-to-date information on office operating status and program contact information.
- In line with current university policy, all in-person events, classes, programs, club meetings, and other group activities organized by or under the auspices of Rutgers Cooperative Extension are suspended through December 31, 2020. Our programs and resources will continue to be delivered through innovative faculty and staff through a variety of remote delivery formats.
For more than a century, Rutgers Cooperative Extension has served New Jersey. We are committed to helping you navigate through this time of unprecedented challenges and toward the better days that lie ahead.
