Public Service Recognition Week is a time set aside to honor the individuals who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. It is a valuable morale booster and a pleasant distraction from intense work.

If you have satellite offices or teleworking staff, be sure to establish a way to collect photos and share participation in advance.
Your department's priorities in response to COVID-19 should take precedence over participating in Public Service Recognition Week and, if you are participating in these activities in person, remember social distancing recommendations.
Recommended events are optional, not required or mandatory. Postponing Public Service Recognition Week to a later date is another option, just be sure to communicate that decision to staff so they feel informed.
