[September 23, 2020]  The impact of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) continues to create uncertainty and concern both globally and here in our community. Illinois Extension is in the process of activating strategies with campus to protect everyone’s health and safety.

This week, the University of Illinois announced a suspension on all in-person events and meetings in campus facilities to protect you and our entire community. Illinois Extension, as the outreach program of the university, aligns with all policies related to public health and safety.

Effective Friday, March 13, all university-sponsored events with more than 50 anticipated attendees are suspended indefinitely.

As a result of this action, the Russel Allen Garden Day scheduled for March 28 in Lincoln has been cancelled.
