Starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the OSU Extension Office in Richland County will close temporarily in response to confirmation of the coronavirus in the State of Ohio. The office will re-open once official notification from The Ohio State University’s Extension Administration has communicated that normal office functions can resume.

The university is committed to doing everything possible to promote the safety of our community, clientele and staff as we respond to the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). One of the best ways to prevent the spread of viral illnesses is to minimize the circumstances in which individuals might interact and transmit the disease. The university has requested that employees telework, hold meetings virtually, or postpone them.

The safety of our community is our top priority. We realize that our COVID-19 policy guidelines will cause disruption, but the risk of not acting outweighs the inconvenience of these temporary measures. We will share updates as more information becomes available.  Learn how we’re working to keep our communities safe at wexnermedical.osu.edu/features/coronavirus.  At this time all staff are continuing to serve clientele remotely via phone, email, Zoom meetings and voice mail messages.

If you have visited us today and require services, please call 419-747-8755. Leave a message with your need or request.  We will respond as soon as we are able.

Sincerely,

OSU Extension Richland County Office Team
