RE: Updated COVID-Guidelines EFFECTIVE 3.12.2022

It is my distinct pleasure to release the updated COVID-19 protocols for the University of California 4-H Youth Development Program. I trust these protocols will allow you to continue and resume your 4-H efforts with little to no restrictions.

I would also like to take this time to thank everyone for their continued commitment to the 4-H program during this unprecedented time. I am truly proud of each one of you for your commitment to 4-H, keeping everyone safe, and leading in such uncertain times. Now more than ever, the power of 4-H is making an important impact in local communities.
Best of luck in completing the 4-H year and enjoy yourselves at camp, fair and conferences as you return to seeing friends, actively engaging in learning and serving your communities.

Vaccination Policy for UC 4-H

COVID Vaccination Status

UC ANR 4-H is not requiring proof of vaccination for the events we host, manage and control.

If a host location requires proof of vaccination, the following protocols must be followed:

Protocols for Confirming COVID Vaccination Status
1. Vaccination documentation will be a required upload as part of the on-line registration process.

2. Vaccination status will be kept confidential. Access to information will be limited to Nurse/Health Supervisor, Location/Camp Director, and necessary UC ANR staff.

3. Once vaccination information is reviewed and documented, all uploaded vaccination information will be eliminated from the registration files for the event.

4. Additional information can be found at Risk-Based Guidance for Requiring COVID-19 Vaccination or Negative Test for UC ANR Events/Activities.
