The top priority will be given to first responders, health and emergency management services, critical government infrastructure, and ensuring the ability to work from home with Teams for everyone.

For Microsoft Learning Partner, these restrictions can cause confusion in teaching process. However, Microsoft World Wide Learning is working on that in the attempt to solve this problem as soon as possible.
