COVID-19: Information for PEF Members & Staff
The spread of the coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19, have impacted everyone’s lives – at work and at home. From the beginning of the outbreak in March 2020, PEF has worked diligently to protect our members. Those on the front line of New York’s response need information and resources to help keep them safe. Those working from home need guidance on when it’s safe to return to work. This page is where we will provide that information, along with additional resources available to you and what you can do to protect yourselves.
