What do you do for Yuba Water Agency?
My job at the water agency is to make sure that all of the computer systems are running and secure, so that the people I work with can do their job.
Have your essential duties changed since COVID-19? If so, what has changed?
Generally, my tasks have not changed, but support has become a bit more of a challenge. Yuba Water went from a small group of people working remotely to everyone needing the ability to work remotely. This put a huge strain on resources that were not affected prior to COVID-19. However, the way in which our workforce has adapted to this “new normal” has been awesome to watch and we now have systems in place to maintain security and support staff regardless of their location.
