The need to practice social distancing in order to reduce transmission of COVID-19 means that beekeepers now need to gather together in different ways.

The Alabama Cooperative Extension proposes that members of beekeeping clubs attend ’remote’ meetings from the comfort of their own home using a computer or mobile device. Each event will allow participants to learn about timely beekeeping information and to contribute to discussions.
