No matter what's going on in the world, it seems like there's a clip from The Office for every situation. Nowadays, people are taking certain health precautions to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), and you may not think the NBC comedy show has anything to add to this serious conversation, but you're mistaken.
