General Operations:

  • Offices will continue to sanitize regularly and make hand sanitation supplies available.
  • Employees must wear masks consistent with current UK COVID masking guidance.
  • Masks and social distancing are recommended for all unvaccinated clientele at local county offices and Extension led programs. Local office staff should make efforts to respectfully support groups who request/need/desire socially distanced room arrangements. Proof of vaccination will not be requested or required.

Programs and Events with Youth Under Age 12 (including mixed age groups):

  • Indoors: Requirements regarding masking and social distancing are very fluid and can change rapidly. When conducting programs for youth under 12, please follow the current guidelines required by the local public school system.
  • Outdoors: In general, people do not need to wear masks when outdoors. However, particularly in areas of substantial high transmission, people/youth who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings or during activities that involve sustained close contact with other people who are not fully vaccinated.
  • Multi-County/State Programs: The use of masks and social distancing for all individuals of any age or vaccination status are required for youth programs with children under 12 years of age.

Please Note: County health deparment and/or county/city government issue requirements that are more restrictive than our current guidance will be followed and adhered to.
