The public health crisis presented by COVID-19 is, understandably, creating anxiety and uncertainty for individuals, families, and businesses across our state. Rutgers Cooperative Extension faculty, staff and volunteers continue to provide you with access to factual information, science-based resources, and the breadth of expertise that exists at your state university. To help protect the health of Cooperative Extension personnel and all of those we serve across the state, the following temporary measures are in effect.
- Rutgers Cooperative Extension county offices are temporarily closed to the public in accordance with state and university social distancing measures being implemented to control the community spread of COVID-19. However, our faculty and staff are working 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 at least August 14, 2020.
Please know that Rutgers Cooperative Extension—and all of us at the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station—remain deeply committed to serving the needs of New Jersey residents and businesses during this time of so much social and economic disruption.
