Extension Marinette County Events and Activities Postponed Due to COVID-19 Policies and Concerns

Due to the possibility and risk of infection, the UW Madison, Division of Extension is requiring our State and County sponsored, as well as, volunteer-led clubs and associations to cancel or postpone upcoming events between now and April 10 that:

  • Expect to draw more than 50 people;
  • Draw participants from multiple counties; or
  • Include participants from an older population, those with compromised immune systems, or those who come into close contact with older populations

In addition to larger events, please also use your discretion when holding smaller club and project meetings.  Consider your location, and your audience.  If anyone has symptoms of illness we ask that you do not participate.  If there are any events where you would come into contact with our older, or immune compromised community members we ask that you postpone them, as this virus tends to be more severe with these individuals.

With that said, and after much discussion, we will be postponing Monday night’s 4-H activities (for March 16) which includes the Speech Contest, the Music Fest, interviews and Association Meeting.  Also included, at this time, will be the postponement of next month’s 4-H Drama and Demonstration Contest, along with the April monthly Association meeting.
