You’ve seen the headlines.
Schools are improvising online and students are learning remotely. Theaters, hair salons, banks, gyms, restaurants and other businesses have closed their doors.
Many aspects of our lives have changed quickly, but many industries and professionals are working to ensure important aspects of society continue.
Truck drivers, emergency services and medical staff, grocery and restaurant employees and yes, utility workers, remain on the job.
Here are just some of those tweets we’ve seen in recent days and, at the end of this story, one great message from Hugh Jackman:
Colorado’s state health department thanked everyone for doing their part by jamming as many emojis as they could fit into Twitter’s 280-character limit.
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock reminded us that we are all in this together. Cue the tissue.
Thank you to EVERYONE who is doing their part to help us get through this trying time in the life of our city, our nation and across the world. We will get to the other side of this, together. pic.twitter.com/9aCh5tBmbp

Other organizations are also doing their part to share information and give us all a lift when we need it.
You asked and we listened! We promised we’re #bringingthezootoyou, & today’s first LIVE stream will be all things 🐘! We might all be socially distanced, but we can’t say the same thing about our 5 bachelor boys, who make up the largest Asian 🐘 bachelor herd in North America. pic.twitter.com/kUZ4GwCkM6
