It’s been almost a month since Microsoft employees began telecommuting from home, and in that month, there’s been a lot of changes.

King County cases of COVID-19 are at an all-time high of 1,277, Washingtonians are being urged to stay home unless necessary, and there’s a shortage of masks for those working on the front lines of the pandemic.

As a way to help those in the Puget Sound community, Microsoft’s president, Brad Smith, has announced that Microsoft’s teams will be doing what they can to assist in the battle against coronavirus, providing 30,000 boxed lunches for local families, donating 240,000 surgical masks and 35,000 hand sanitizers along with additional supplies to hospitals around Washington.

Brad Smith also mentioned that they “understand the urgency to secure more, and we will.”
