Pandemic stress

Coping with coronavirus concerns

The “Coronavirus: Prepare without Panic” handouts are available on the Employee Assistance Program website.

The Postal Service wants employees to take care of their health and well-being as they continue to adjust to challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

To help employees cope, the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) has introduced “Coronavirus: Prepare without Panic,” a series of information sheets.

The sheets cover several topics, including becoming more comfortable with uncertainty, anxiety, encouraging resilience, displaying grace under pressure and physical exercise for stress relief.

Information about COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, and tips to stay healthy are also provided.

The sheets are available on, the EAP’s website, in the “Monthly Focus” section.

EAP is a voluntary, confidential, free service that can be accessed through the EAP site, online apps, in person or by calling 800-327-4968 (TTY: 877-492-7341).
