The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives temporarily, and in other cases has permanently altered our day-to-day lives. In fact, one of the top problems is the unemployment crisis right now, where the rates were last reported to be at 14.7% in the United States. The danger of working in an office space led to many trading in their business casual attire for a comfortable pair of pajamas. More than half of all employees in America still work from home because of the pandemic. With many states reopening now and moving into different phases the question is: When will we be returning to work? This question has a variety of concerns behind it including wearing masks, revamping the office space to follow social distancing guidelines, and how many people can return at a time. I think many organizations are on the cusp of returning to work, so what practices can we follow to ensure safety?
