Government Work and COVID-19

Change and uncertainty is in the air right now, especially for public servants, many of whom are adapting to virtual meetings, home offices, and other new ways of working.

Public servants have also been in the spotlight as government has led the response to COVID-19. Our country’s government employees are stepping up to ensure that vital services continue uninterrupted and that new programs and protocols are successful.
