4-H Ontario Update on a Return to In-Person Activities

With the vast majority of Ontario moving to phase 2 of Ontario’s plan to reopen the province, 4-H Ontario would to update our participants, volunteers and stakeholders with the news that we will be releasing our framework and requirements for returning to in-person activities.

The framework package is being created in collaboration with 4-H Canada and includes input from the various Provincial Supervisors across Canada. This package will involve a checklist of requirements along with guidelines for meeting best-practices for social distancing, cleanliness, personal protective equipment and more. There will also be a waiver for parents, and some recommendations around further considerations for best practices as outlined by public health.

Please look for the reopening package in the next 2 weeks, and in the meantime, please remember that all in-person activities continue to be suspended.

We ask our club leaders and volunteers to begin to think about what a new, safer 4-H club would look like in your area. What measures are required for in-person gatherings as directed by your local health unit, and how can 4-H Ontario support you in returning to activities?

As we move forward with this new way of operating, we want to take a moment to say thank you to all of our volunteers and members who have continuously reminded us about the strength and resilience of 4-H, and for working with us moving forward to ensure a safe, healthy environment for all of our participants and volunteers.
