OSU Extension is deeply committed to the health and well-being of its staff and doing our part to help stem the spread of coronavirus disease COVID-19. Governor DeWine recently issued a state of emergency and implemented a variety of strategies to reduce the spread of the disease. In order to do our part in reducing risk to our employees or clientele, we have implemented a teleworking plan.

Due to the Lawrence County Court House’s current restrictions, we will be physically closed. However, we are committed to continuing to conduct our work as fully as possible.  In recent years, we’ve invested in the technology needed to facilitate effective teleworking.  We will utilize all our teleworking capabilities in order to continue serving our clientele and community. You should continue to feel free to call, email, etc. with any OSU Extension staff member as you normally would; contact information is available on our website at Our office line, 740-533-4322, will be directed to our telecommuting technologies should you need to talk with us. We recognize this is a difficult time for everyone at OSU Extension, at our community partner institutions, and with our communities and families with the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the concern we have for the well-being of everyone.  Please do not hesitate to let us know if we can be helpful in any way.
