In-person Extension events resume at reduced capacities
STARKVILLE, Miss. -- The Mississippi State University Extension Service resumed in-person activities with social distancing guidelines in place Sept. 1.
Meetings at all Extension offices and units -- including the Bost Extension Center, the four regional Research and Extension Centers, and each of Extension’s 82 county offices -- will be limited to 50% seating occupancy for conference spaces and auditoriums. Participants must remain 6 feet apart.
The use of face coverings and social distancing guidelines will be required at all indoor and outdoor Extension events until further notice.
“We are committed to keeping both our employees and our clients as safe as we can while still performing our much-needed educational programming,” said Extension Director Gary Jackson. “This means continuing to make as much of that education as possible available online while being available for our clients in person as appropriate.”
