UCCE Contra Costa
On March 17, 2020, a “Shelter-In-Place of Residence” order was issued for all Bay Area counties. To protect you and your families, our staff, our partners, our volunteers, and the communities we live and work in from the risks associated with COVID-19, UC ANR Cooperative Extension has implemented a work from home policy for our staff. This policy will remain in effect from March 17, 2020 through April 7, 2020.
We also had to cancel various activities and events in our schools and throughout the communities we service. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. However, we want to assure you that the health and well-being of our employees and our community is our top priority.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and update our policies and procedures as the need arises. Please continue to check this page for any updated policies, changes in service and updates on events. We also want to encourage you to follow the guidance(s) associated with the “Shelter-In-Place of Residence” order, as well as information posted on the various county and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) websites. Thank you for your continued and ongoing support.
