Nebraska Extension Programs and COVID-19

Nebraska Extension is committed to the health and well-being of Nebraskans. In a disease situation like COVID-19, the principle of social distancing is one of the main methods that can be used to help reduce the spread of the disease.

Chancellor Ronnie Green has issued guidance that all UNL classes will move to remote modes (video or teleconferencing). To be consistent with that guidance, Nebraska Extension will provide Extension programs remotely when possible but will not provide in-person Extension programs through May 9. We recognize that this practice may create disruption relative to the important information we provide to Nebraskans. In addition to our remote course offerings, we encourage Nebraskans to visit extension.unl.edu to access a wide array of online information.

Based on our current mandate, We have canceled or postponed all Extension events from March 14th through May 9.


This was a difficult decision but we are putting the health and well-being of our communities first.
