Managing a crisis well includes anticipating a rising need. This requires governments to continuously monitor the current situation closely as well as to set up requirements early enough to take action immediately. As a result of the corona crisis, municipal staff not afflicted by the virus is under a lot of pressure.
The Swedish City of Uppsala has set up a job platform to create a pool of municipal workers. Since it is highly possible that there will be a lack of staff in many areas due a possibly extended outbreak of Covid-19, the city is looking for staff in the areas of social services, elderly care, home care, cleaning, canteens and child care. Anyone who is willing to take up a job to help secure local services is welcome to file an application. The tasks people can take on depend on their experience, education, availability, etc.
