WSU COVID UPDATE

Washington State University has adopted the Governor’s updated mask policy which is effective March 12, 2022.  This policy eliminates the general masking requirement in both indoor and outdoor situations, unless specifically required for a particular location for health reasons (such as clinics).  Also eliminated is the general requirement for social distancing among vaccinated individuals.  WSU has extended the relaxation of the masking and distancing requirements to those employees who have exemptions from the vaccine requirement (for religious or medical reasons) and have approved accommodations at their workplace.

WSU Extension has therefore adopted the following:

 

Vaccination Requirements Continue

The vaccine mandate for WSU employees and volunteers remains in place. WSU employees and volunteers must be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption with an accommodation on file to engage in work with WSU Extension.

 

Masking Policy Changes

WSU Extension has adopted the Governor’s mask policy effective March 12, 2022.  This policy eliminates the general masking requirement in both indoor and outdoor situations, unless specifically required for a particular location such as health care settings and public transportation.  This extends to individuals who have an approved accommodation based on a medical or religious exemption, who no longer are required to wear a mask as a condition of that accommodation.

 

Social Distancing Changes

WSU Extension applies the relaxation of social distancing requirements to those volunteers who are fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption with an accommodation (for religious or medical reasons) on file at their workplace or county office.

PLEASE NOTE – individual offices and locations may continue to require masking and/or distancing at the office level for all office programs in light of local risks and conditions

North Whidbey Rock’N Doodle Poultry 4-H Club.

4-H is the nation’s largest positive youth development and youth mentoring organization, empowering six million young people in the U.S.

In partnership with 110 universities, 4-H life-changing programs are research-backed & available through 4-H clubs, camps, after school & school enrichment programs in every county in the U.S.

4-H is the youth development program of our nation’s Cooperative Extension System & USDA.

Island County 4-H is a youth organization with a mission of engaging youth to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of positive youth development. It is open to all 5-19-year-olds.

4-H Age is determined by October 1st of the current 4-H year. Youth who have reached their 5th birthday before October 1st of the current 4-H year, through those who have not reached their 19th birthday before October 1st of the current 4-H year.

There are four personal development areas on which 4-H focuses: Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.

Though typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, 4-H today focuses on citizenship, healthy living, science, engineering and technology, and animal science.

4-H is in the business of growing kids. We do this by working in our community to offer a wide range of opportunities for K-12 youth. We seek to support kids as they discover their talents and interests and then provide them with experiences to help them deepen, strengthen, and use those talents and interests! The ultimate goal of 4-H is to develop citizenship, leadership, communication, and life skills through experiential learning programs and a positive youth development approach.

In addition to the club structure that many are familiar with, we also offer activities for families that can be done outside of a commitment to a club, and resources for educators to use in their classrooms.4-H is all about “learning by doing,” and recognizing the role youth play in the health and vitality of our community.
