|Subject:||Protecting Workers in Institutions of Higher Education|
|Workers and their families across Pennsylvania and throughout job sectors are pushing forward to provide some form of normalcy despite COVID-19. While we continue to prioritize the safety of our students and most vulnerable individuals, we cannot forget those who have stepped up to the plate to go above and beyond the call of duty while assuming risk.

We cannot expect our students to receive a high quality, post-secondary education during a pandemic without equipping our staff with the necessary tools to deliver such an education. Please join me in maintaining the safety and stability of these important people who are working to ensure students and young adults are prepared to rebuild the economy when this is over.
