Hours of Operation

8:00a.m. - 4:30p.m.


The safety of our community is the top priority of The Ohio State University (OSU).  Recently Governor DeWine issued a state of emergency and implemented a variety of strategies to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. In keeping with those directives and strategies, The Ohio State University has implemented a telework plan for all county Extension offices.  In addition to cancelling and/or postponing any meetings, events, programs that included face-to-face contact, OSU is implementing the use of virtual meetings and educational programming whenever possible.  As a further measure to reduce the risk of exposure to, or the possible transmission of the COVID-19 virus and to slow the spread of the virus, OSU is physically closing all county Extension offices throughout the state effective at 4:30 pm, March 18.  Offices will remain closed until further notice.

Wayne County Extension personnel will be working remotely from their homes during this temporary closure.  Questions and requests for infomation can be directed to our office phone number at 330-264-8722.  A recorded message will provide directions to transfer the call to any person within the Wayne County Extension team.  Office personnel will respond by directly answering, or, if a voice mail message is left, returning the call as promptly as possible.  Communication via email will also be in place.  Continue to check this website for updates regarding current information and educational efforts.

Thank you for your patience during this period.

    Coping in Times of Stress

    We all deal with stress throughout our lives, and we all deal with stress differently. According to the National Institutes of Health, not all stress is bad. For example, stress can be a motivator when taking a test or interviewing for a new job.
