COVID and 4-H

March 1, 2021

We continue to be cognoscente of the safety of all 4-H youth as they participate in 4-H activities.  We are fortunate to live in a state with wide-open spaces, limited populations, and responsible citizens that have allowed us to do more 4-H activities than most other states.  Thank you for contributing to being able to have successful county and state fairs, club meetings, project meetings, workshops, clinics, etc.  We continue to operate within the county health guidance and the Governor of Wyoming’s restrictions on meetings.  For specifics, you can find them on the Dept of Health site or the WY Dept. of Health COVID-19 Resources and, if you are intrigued, you can check out UW’s Return to Campus Plan
