There is a lot of discussion going on in the corporation I work for. As it stands, no one is allowed on any US properties unless you are security or a
vital manufacturing employee. Temps are taken at the gate, if you have a temp you don't go in. If you're sick you are told not to come in. Those of us
contractors and employees that are working from home will continue to do so until further notice. There is a possibility, extremely slight, that we
can go back by the end of May but we'll find out more tomorrow morning. I suspect many of us won't be going back until June at the earliest and that
will be in stages.
When we do go back it will be a different landscape. Instead of open rows/sections of desks they're talking about possibly having us with a desk
in-between, or possibly going back to cubes. I'd rather work from home if that's going to be the case. I wouldn't mind going in one day a week for
in-person contact but so far WebEx meetings have been working just fine. We use teams for group chatting so we still get to discuss things easily. It
sounds like masks will be mandatory for some time, even if no symptoms are present. It's going to be very, very different for a long time.
Personally I would rather stay at home where I'm not putting 75 miles a day on my car, spending extra money to eat one or two meals a day there, not
having to wear pants, socks or shoes, and so on.
