The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused changes throughout the entire country. University of Maryland Extension (UME) is committed to maintaining the resources Maryland needs to continue thriving during these trying times.

We are adjusting how we function to continue providing our people with the knowledge and assistance they need to stay productive and healthy, and appreciate the patience of the community as we strive to build offerings online and adjust our outreach strategies, while maintaining necessary social distancing.

UME is currently working to meet the changing needs of the community, and many of our educational programs and events have transitioned to virtual platforms. Programming and events online will still be held throughout the day, evening and on weekends. Your local agent is also available via email, phone, and teleconferencing, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Please visit your local extension office’s website for information on your best email or phone contact.
