Nebraska 4-H takes the health and safety of our community very seriously and we are carefully monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation.

As United States and global health officials continue to address the spread of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 infection, health and emergency preparedness officials at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln are monitoring the situation in collaboration with our university and governmental partners. In doing our part to be responsible for convening large groups of people, we are carefully reviewing calendars and determining how we proceed with each scheduled event. This will be a fluid process as we continue to monitor all available information in the days and weeks ahead.

We thank you for your continued patience and support as we learn more from our public health officials and educational partners, and determine the best way to continue serving young people during this time. For updates on Nebraska 4-H and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s evolving position on COVID-19, please visit our website at We also encourage you to refer to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for the most current recommendations pertaining to health and personal risk factors.

We will communicate decisions about Nebraska 4-H state-level programs on this page and encourage you to visit your county webpages for up to date information on local programming. Please check back regularly as this is a developing situation and in the coming days, weeks, and months we will know more about the local implications of COVID-19. If you have questions, please send them to

Note that most restrictive guidance, based on local health department COVID-19 Risk Dial ratings or State DHM color phase for your respective location should be followed in the Extension guidance document (e.g., if either youth local health department or State DHM is in the red zone, Extension/4-H programs, meetings, and events must be delivered virtually).
