COVID-19 Information for 4-H Programs and Volunteers
University of California 4-H Youth Development Program modified its safety standards related to reopening and engaging in person.
UC ANR implemented Basic Safety Standards that must be followed for all in-person activities. These Basic Safety Standards are minimum requirements for conducting 4-H programs. You must also follow additional guidelines specified by your county if they are more restrictive.
All in-person 4-H meetings or programs involving the participation of 4-H volunteers, families and members requires prior approval from UCCE personnel (4-H program staff, 4-H Youth Development Advisor, and/or County Director).
Any unauthorized in-person activities will not be covered by the UC insurance and may not be included in 4-H record books. Corrective actions will be taken if 4-H volunteers or families host or participate in any unauthorized in-person 4-H activities.
Please note that while in-person gatherings may be allowed, some families may not feel comfortable meeting in-person. You may still need to plan for remote participation.
Monterey County has entered the Red Tier as outlined in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/ Adult volunteers, parents and youth members are to follow the in-person meeting requirements outline on the attached Occupancy Table as well as using the forms listed below.
