COVID-19 Information & Resources

At a time when information is either coming in fast, is still developing, or is rumor-based, NASWVA has launched this special COVID-19 section to provide carefully curated, verified news and resources in a single location for all area social workers.

Every social worker in the Metro DC area, not just NASW members, should have access to the best information during this emergency, so please bookmark this public site, so you can check back often.

Social workers are well-trained and experienced in crisis management. We deal with different emergencies every day. While the public may panic about the pandemic, social work professionals in hospitals, schools, agencies, clinics, and elsewhere are calmly working to address community and individual needs in ways that help reduce stress and fear. This is when the 700,000 social workers in America can shine—on the frontlines of national and state responses to reduce the spread and impacts of COVID-19.

Thank you for all you are doing as a social worker. Please take care of yourself, too, so you can stay healthy and function at your best. If you have any questions, please email me at  

--Debra Riggs, CAE, Executive Director, NASW Metro Virginia Chapter
