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. The health and well being of 4-H families is our priority. 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. Recent changes to the UC ANR Mitigation Standards may allow for slightly larger gatherings outdoors. Once Santa Clara County has reached the "orange tier," there is a possibility for in-person, indoor meetings with prior approval and following strict guidelines.

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 a minimum of two adults and a number of youth that complies with county tier table. The  specific meeting guidelines. shall be followed at all times.

In the event that this direction is revised, we will continue to keep you updated via email and on the SCC4H.org website.
