As a result of the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), state agencies handling unemployment insurance, reemployment services and pre-employment training are faced with a new set of challenges in how to handle claims filings, work search requirements and other scenarios as a result of the outbreak, in addition to assuring their own state workforce is safe and healthy.

This web page highlights information provided by states on how they are dealing with workforce issues related to the impact of COVID-19 on their daily operations. In addition, other useful resources from the public and private sectors are provided at the bottom of the state listing. For general information about states’ efforts regarding COVID-19, please visit state websites. This page will be updated as we receive information from the states.

The three links below (Center for Disease Control and Prevention-CDC, Johns Hopkins-JH and World Health Organization-WHO) contain the most accurate and up-to-date information about the virus.
