Dear 4-H Families,
We have received information from the State 4-H office and the County that we would like to share with all of you at this time. Having a safe event is our first priority.
The State 4-H office is asking that event planners and families please keep up to date with developments in the county where event are taking place. This will serve as a guide to make sound decisions about canceling or maintaining an event, and attending or not attending an event. CDC recommendations can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/mass-gatherings-ready-for-covid-19.html.
We are also forwarding you the most current information from the County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department. Ultimately at this time it is up to event planners to decide if they will be holding an event or canceling and for families to decide if the will attend events or not.
