#socialdistancing: Create Physical Distance but Stay in TouchIt may be easier to stay six feet from the nearest person but that doesn’t mean that farmers and ranchers aren’t having to cope with uncertainty. Learning to recognize your stressors and how to manage stress can help you personally and those around you. If you recognize someone in distress, use a caring approach in listening to them, and then connect them to resources.

The Gage County Extension Office is open, as of June 15!
We would like all of you to know that we take the safety of our community and our staff very seriously. As we move through the re-opening of our office, we are taking precautionary steps to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Those steps include:
• As you visit our office, you will be asked to remain at the front door. Clients/guests will not be allowed to enter into our office workspace in order to protect our staff.
• We will maintain six foot distancing for safety and regularly wipe down work surfaces.
• We encourage clients/guests to wear protective masks while in the building.
We had a lot of really thoughtful questions at our County Fair Information Meeting on June 29th. We want to thank everyone for joining us.
