Santa Clara County 4-H: Something for Everyone

As you know, Governor Newsom’s statewide shelter-in-place order remains in effect with no defined end date. In cooperation with the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order, The University of California Cooperative Extension for Santa Clara County, including the 4-H Youth Development Program staff is working remotely. We are still here to answer your questions and address needs during this unprecedented situation and will return your email as soon as possible.

Santa Clara County Directive for 4-H Programs

planning for in-person meetings/events/gatherings

Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 shelter in place orders. We are extremely grateful to our 4-H members, volunteers and 4-H families who are making efforts to keep our 4-H community safe. While the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve, we are not yet considered a program with lifted restrictions.

In following the Santa County Public Health Officer’s order, the 4-H Program in Santa Clara County will continue to hold club meetings, most project meetings, council meetings, etc. on virtual platforms until further notice. Applications are available to seek approval for in-person project meetings that include no more than two adults and eight youth following the specific meeting guidelines.

This is not a decision that we take lightly, as many of our 4-H members would prefer to return to in-person project and club meetings. In the event that this direction is revised, we will continue to keep you updated via email and on the SCC4H.org website.

  • Cancel, postpone or conduct online all 4-H club, council, project meetings/events/gatherings Santa Clara County wide until further notice unless an in-person meeting has received approval from the SCC 4-H office.
  • If the Governor’s order is lifted, modified, or other public health guidance concerning in-person gatherings is issued, this date will be reassessed and new standards for public gatherings will be provided.
