Virtual Work / Telecommuting Where Possible

In order to keep staff safe and to support the public health effort to fight the spread of COVID-19, administrators and management, in accordance with local/national government mandates, are determining if employees can effectively do their jobs from home via telecommuting.  See below for projects and contracts that are considered essential.
