Notes on the Event Schedule Change
The impact of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) continues to create uncertainty and concern both globally and here in our community. Following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, the University of Illinois has implemented social-distancing protocols that impact all university events. Illinois Extension, as the outreach program of the university, aligns with all policies related to public health and safety.
Effective immediately, ALL face-to-face events organized by Illinois Extension have been cancelled, suspended, or transitioned to online delivery. This will apply to all events previously scheduled through May 31, 2020.
This plan may change based on guidance and direction provided by the local public health department. Look for specific information about other cancellations and postponements on our website at (look for communications updated regularly on our homepage).
We are working to support all Illinois families at this time. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this situation.
