This article to aims to discuss the (potential) responses of the social work profession to COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing on the secondary sources and the author’s own reflections, it identifies and suggests seven ways of responding to the pandemic. Underpinning the significance of and applying love and knowledge for the humanity, the profession can play a pivotal role in awareness-raising, dealing with the consequences of social and physical distancing, addressing the needs of those who are left out and most vulnerable, working with multidisciplinary teams, extending practice from individual to institutional, and or from casework to community work, long-term rehabilitation, and research and documentation. These initial thoughts are presented to facilitate further scholarly discussion, research and action both at local and global levels.
