As a result of the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), state workforce agencies handling unemployment insurance, reemployment services, and pre-employment training are faced with a new set of challenges. The states are actively responding to these challenges to provide information for workers and what help can be available to them during this time.

NASWA has launched a page containing real-time Information from the states on actions they are taking to assist workers.
