UGA Extension Office

Home

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Status Update: All Extension face-to-face programming and events have been canceled or postponed through April 24. For now, our local County Extension Offices are closed to the public. Read the full announcement.

While it is not at all "business as usual," we want to assure you UGA Extension is committed to doing all we can to be a part of the solution in this unique situation. UGA Extension offers resources on sanitizing your home, hand washing, emergency food supplies, and keeping farm operations running.

COVID-19 Resources

Due to the effects of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), beginning Thursday, March 26, 2020, the Coffee County Extension Office will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.

 

We will continue to work and are available for your Agriculture, Family & Consumer Sciences, or 4-H needs.

 

We are still processing soil samples as long as the lab in Athens remains open. Bring your soil samples to the office and call or knock and an Extension Staff member will help you.

 

All local, in-person 4-H activities are cancelled until further notice. District and State events are being evaluated. 4-H Summer Camp is still planned and we are still taking payments by mail. 

 

We will continue to be here and serve Coffee County residents and will update you with more information as it becomes available.

 

Please knock or call 912-384-1402 for assistance. We are closed daily from 12-1 for lunch.
