Extension Launches Website for COVID-19 Resources
COVID-19 has disrupted our lives and routines, from how we work, play and parent, to how we learn, shop and connect with our community. To help North Carolinians adjust to this “new normal,” I’m thankful to announce that NC State Extension has launched the Extension COVID-19 Resources Portal.
Our top priority is the health and well-being of the people of North Carolina. In order to help people across the state navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and address the challenges associated with this virus, this website will serve as a one-stop-shop for timely COVID-19 information and guidance from our Extension specialists and subject-matter experts.
Note that this site is not meant to replace your channels — continue to create and post info as normal! Our Extension communications and EIT teams developed the portal as a platform to highlight your collective expertise and the essential work you’re doing related to COVID-19 in one place. Visitors to the website can subscribe to receive regular email updates and also share their COVID-19 questions and provide suggestions for additional resources.
To that end, it’s critical that you, our specialists and experts, recognize the importance of your feedback and collaboration in maintaining the portal as an invaluable resource for North Carolinians. Moving forward, continue posting new COVID-19 information and resources to your Extension sites as normal, but make sure you inform our communications team about pertinent updates that should be on the new portal.
The site will surely evolve in the weeks ahead, resources are currently organized in these categories:
- Farms & Agribusiness
- Food Safety
- Health & Wellness
- Youth & Family
- Natural Resources
- Other Resources
Please share this new site with your audiences and continue to help us serve people across the state during their time of need. This message and all COVID-19-related announcements from NC State Extension and CALS administration are available on the Extension intranet.
