The United States is facing one of its most severe challenges in the last 100 years. Lockdowns and restrictions are hampering movements. The supply of goods and medicines have become a logistic nightmare. However, workers are putting in long hours to make sure the goods and services we need arrive on time.
Digital technology is somewhat filling the void by providing access for students and parents to work from home. Many businesses have adapted new ways of working together via the internet.
