ISU Extension and Outreach County Offices Begin Reopening to the Public

AMES, Iowa – Throughout the state, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach county offices are beginning to reopen to the public. Some offices already are fully open to the public, some are open by appointment only and others are preparing to reopen. Iowans should contact their county office for information about local reopening plans.

Health and safety first

“As county extension councils and local staff plan for reopening their offices to the public, they first and foremost are making plans to protect staff, volunteers, participants and communities. The health and safety of Iowans is our greatest concern,” said John D. Lawrence, vice president for extension and outreach.
To help county offices plan for reopening to the public, ISU Extension and Outreach has been reviewing and adapting guidance from Gov. Reynolds, Iowa State University, Iowa Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Using this guidance, each county extension office is determining how to best meet local needs and circumstances while planning for social/physical distancing, how many people can gather, personal health monitoring and other infection control strategies,” Lawrence said.
