COVID-19 Statement from UMass Extension

As you are probably aware, operations at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have been significantly reduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to student activities, this also applies to research and the facilities managed by UMass Extension and the Center for Agriculture, Food, and the Environment. Current Massachusetts and University policy have the effect of temporarily suspending many of the services that we provide.
