Coping With COVID-19

Together, we are determined to persevere.

The COVID-19 pandemic may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety can be overwhelming in both adults and children. To assist you in coping with stress, Human Resources has compiled resources containing helpful advice and tools to guide you while working at UB. 

Family Care

We know parents are struggling to balance work and child care while keeping worries — both your children’s and your own — under control. Learn more about the leave benefits and resources available. 


Taking care of your friends and your family is important, but it should be balanced with care for yourself. Everyone can benefit from social support and even virtual classes or meetings can help maintain social connections and help alleviate feelings of isolation. 


Many employees have expressed concerns regarding their retirement. Reach out to your retirement system or financial investment provider to learn more about their COVID-19 response. 


This may be a good time to consider participating in professional development opportunities that can help clarify your career goals moving forward.
