As many of you already know, the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve daily, causing personal and professional stressors and challenges to our everyday lives. We have provided the resources below (Safety tips, Webinars, etc.) offered by our vendors to help State of Maine Employees and Retirees navigate through this unique and difficult time.
The Office of Employee Health and Wellness will continue to update this webpage with a variety of resources and information as it becomes more available.
