We’re all in this together

Secretary Lonnie G. Bunch offers a message of hope and confidence to staff while we cope with the COVID-19 outbreak.

Dear Colleagues,

Like most of you, I am working from home and learning to adapt to our “new normal” as we maintain day-to-day Smithsonian operations through the COVID-19 outbreak.  This week, I wanted to address you via video—click on the link below to watch my first attempt at vlogging.  I hope you appreciate my message as I begin to develop my videographer skills.

Thank you for all you are continuing to do for the Smithsonian. Stay well!
