The COVID-19 pandemic has changed almost all aspects of our daily lives. While we might have settled into our new routines, adjusting to this “new normal” can take a toll on our sense of personal well-being.

Over this past month and a half, hundreds of you have reached out to me to share your stories, your hopes, your dreams, and at times your heartache. Many of those emails include videos and pictures of you and your teams carrying out the DHS mission.
The Department of Homeland Security remains vigilant against the COVID-19 virus and continues to lead an unprecedented national response to slow its growth and deny its transmission to vulnerable populations. To effectuate this, the Department is marshaling the full power of America, from state and local governments to private industry, to identify and accelerate the distribution of critical resources to highly-impacted areas, while securing our borders and protecting vital supply chains from unnecessary disruptions. These coordinated efforts are saving millions of lives and ensuring that no one in America is left behind throughout this crisis.
