Napa County 4-H Safety Standards for Resuming In-Person Programming & Activities (revised 12/17/2020)
Napa County Stay Home Order (we are here)
As of tonight, December 17, 2020 at 11:59PM, Napa County is subject to the Regional “Stay Home Order” issued by the State of California. UCCE has directed that no in-person 4-H meetings may be held (indoors or outdoors). 4-H meetings may only be held remotely (virtually). Please move any planned meetings to an online platform while the “Stay Home Order” is in effect. Please Note: The UC mandate applies to all 4-H in-person gatherings, meetings, or activities that bring together members of different households.
- UC 4-H limits outdoor in-person activities to only 10 individuals total. This means 8 youth and 2 adults maximum. Two adults, one MUST be an approved 4-H volunteer, must be present to conduct any 4-H activity.
- Indoor in-person activities are not permitted in the Purple Tier.
- Outdoor in-person activities can host 14 youth and 2 adults.
- Indoor activities may be limited to 10 participants, 8 youth and 2 adults. Indoor meeting places must allow social distancing, at least 6 feet between all participants. If 6 feet of distance cannot be provided, then you must find a new venue OR reduce the number of participants in your activity.
Required Operating Standards For All Programs Events, Activities, & Meetings
If returning to regular in-person activity is authorized, UC ANR volunteers (acting as agents of the University), that have been advised to resume in-person work must, at a minimum, abide by these five basic protocols even when County requirements are less restrictive:
- Do not participate in any in-person ANR activities if sick (frequent cough, fever, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, recent loss of taste or smell) or if you or someone you have been in contact with has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
- Maintain six feet of distance between people at all times.
- Require universal face coverings (cloth or paper masks, cloth bandanas, etc.) for all volunteers and participants when six feet of separation between people cannot be maintained. Locations must have a small supply to provide upon request. Note: CDC recommends that cloth face coverings should be washed after each use or at least daily.
- No group meetings/gatherings/events with more than the number of individuals indicated above under the specific tier guidelines.
- Purple Tier: maximum of 10 individuals (outdoor only).
- Red Tier: maximum of 16 individuals (outdoor) or 10 individuals (indoor).
- Maintain sanitary practices – frequently clean and disinfect workspaces and equipment, wash hands often, and use hand sanitizer.
