4H Meeting Guidelines Due to COVID-19
Posted 8/25/2020

Attention all enrolled 4-H Adult Volunteers and 4-H Youth/Families. Fulton-Montgomery 4-H will be allowing 4-H Clubs to meet in-person starting soon. Before we are able to allow in-person events, meetings or activities, we must have our volunteers trained in COVID-19 safety procedures and a COVID-19 Assumption of Risk form signed and submitted to the 4-H office for all enrolled adult volunteers and youth participants.

Attached are the required COVID-19 4-H safety forms and a checklist to assist with submission of forms. Below is a link to the recorded zoom training that occurred last Thursday, August 20th. If you are an enrolled 4-H Adult Volunteer and you did not attend the training on zoom last week, it is mandatory that you follow the link below and watch the recorded training. This will take about 47 minutes to complete. Once finished, please complete and sign the required forms and submit them to the 4-H office. See checklist for more details.

The attachment listed as “COVID 4-H Safety Plan Ful Mont” contains these forms from the checklist;
The COVID-19 Safety Plan (pages 1-4), Health Screening (page 5), 4-H Meeting & Event Log (page 6) and 4-H Meeting & Event Safety Plan (page 7).
