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

In an abundance of caution due to the Coronavirus outbreak, our office is currently closed. All UGA Extension Screven County programs and events are cancelled through at least April 30, 2020. If you need to contact staff, please email us or call. We are monitoring this situation closely, and this schedule is subject to change.

We are still accepting soil, water, and plant samples. There is a place to put them with instructions; located right beside the front door of our office.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know.
