With a “safer-at-home” order now in effect for all of Wisconsin, our staff is producing resources across our program areas to help those all over Wisconsin. We will collect and link these resources as they’re available. Tools for small businesses, farmers, and those looking for financial support have already been produced and given to educators to help the public. You are invited to follow along with Extension as we share the latest resources as they pertain to the COVID-19 outbreak and how Extension is responding via this page as well as the following website: https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/covid19
Iowa County Extension Staff Are Available
Iowa County Extension is doing its part to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As UW-Madison employees, county-based Division of Extension staff across the state are telecommuting and not working from our usual shared office spaces. All Extension in-person meetings, programs, and activities have been cancelled or postponed for the next several weeks.
However, during the Wisconsin “safer-at-home” order, our staff is still producing and sharing resources to help our communities through this pandemic. Extension staff members are also available to provide much of their regular educational programs, although not in person. Extension educators are using video-conferencing, phone, and e-mail to conduct meetings and classes, consult with clients, and respond to questions or requests for information. Please call the Extension Office in Iowa County at 608-930-9850 to leave a message and expect a response within a couple of days. For a faster response, e-mail any of our staff members using the directory found on our website at https://iowa.extension.wisc.edu/staff-directory/
