Extension Return-to-Work Guide for County Centers

— Written By

NC State Extension is experiencing a gradual return of employees to work in our county centers, as dictated by the operational needs of both Extension and county government, and in accordance with efforts to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

To help create a safe and supportive work environment and assist our Extension county employees as they transition back to the office, we’ve worked with NC State University to develop a manual that presents COVID-19 safety protocols. These protocols were developed based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the state of North Carolina.

Campus-based Extension personnel can refer to NC State’s campus return-to-work guide at go.ncsu.edu/return-to-work.

All NC State county employees are expected to fully comply with the procedures, protocols, and requirements outlined in this document and in any linked documents and websites, as well as any additional guidance they receive from their supervisors, local health officials, and county government. This document is subject to updates.

As scientific knowledge of the coronavirus continues to evolve, the COVID-19 pandemic changes over time, and government and public-health officials issue new orders and guidance, NC State Extension will update relevant procedures and plans as needed. We will follow all university, local, state, and federal orders, directives of the University of North Carolina System, and CDC guidelines to help ensure a safe environment in our county centers. Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety, and well-being of our Wolfpack community, as well as our Extension clients.
