Being a manager under these conditions means a greater responsibility for you in your role. It is very important that you maintain good communication, and is available for questions from your employees. You need to show that you understand that different people react differently to events in the outside world and to changes in the work situation.
You also have a special responsibility to share information from the university, faculty and your department/unit, and communicate what is relevant to your staff and explain how it affects them.
