By Jeané Blunt. A lot of us at UC are working remotely to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Now is a great time to make sure you’re connected to the broader UC IT community via the UCTech Slack workspace, the UC IT Blog, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter. If you are new to remote work, you might want to visit the #remotework channel on UCTech Slack.
For news and updates please visit the UC coronavirus website. Articles about coping with coronavirus and tips for working from home are also excellent resources.
Working remotely doesn’t have to mean sitting still! Check out these exercises and stretches recommended by the National Institutes of Health. And don’t forget about computer health and security – here are 5 steps to securely work from home.
