Dear EfficientGov Subscriber,

As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses across our communities, our first responders are inevitably being impacted. In this week's member newsletter, we're shining a light on those men and women on the front lines, who have continued to serve despite the risk, and have fallen ill in the process. We wish them all the speediest of recoveries.
