    Love working from home, but i'm wondering if the masses getting sent home could be a double edged sword. Companies realize it works, and decided they no longer need the expense of office space, emptying DT even further

    We are speeding up VPN deployments and expanding bandwidth as needed.

    Rule are set up on when to punt someone from office to work from home but 1 employee already got sent home on a 3rd degree connection (friend of friend's family member confirmed).

    this sounds like a good direction.

    No preemptive policies that I know of. Someone left for Vietnam yesterday for vacation. I don't want to be in the office when he gets back.

    Typical CNRL

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmon...rray-1.5494007

    Coronavirus link sends 130 oilsands workers back to Edmonton after 3-hour impasse

    In the video, the crew member apologizes for the wait before saying, "Supposedly, somebody was indirectly in contact with a presumptive coronavirus patient."

    "The crew member was made aware of the person's positive test result only after they had operated a flight for one of our Alberta charter clients."

    The crew member also says he was told the risk to those on board was low, but Alberta Health, CNRL and Canadian North management were discussing what to do.
    "They didn't want me to tell anybody anything and finally I said, 'Someone's got to know something.' So this is me trying to put you at ease," the crew member says on the video "There's no Ö very low risk."

    Officials had been informed that a crew member reported being in close contact with someone who had later tested positive for coronavirus, Valin said.

    The passenger said when the plane returned to Edmonton, "Nobody from Alberta Health met our plane and little information was shared about self-quarantine, etc."

    The passenger said the entire event seemed "cavalier and nonsensical" because all of the "potentially-infected workers" were sent to the work site the next day.

    my workplace said that working form home is now an option if you would like to take it. Boss figures that in the next week or two confirmed cases will skyrocket and that the entire company (12 people) will be working from home so we are now setting up laptops for this event.

    No clue how this effects our field staff or our Nisku shop but thank goodness for breakup and rigs shutting down I guess

    I don’t see the downside here. Downtown is incredibly overrated

    You don't see a downside to increased vacancy in downtown Calgary?

    I know Suncor had the infected day care but why Eau Claire?
    Not sure if someone already answered but an employee at the garage in Eau Claire tested positive.

    Wouldn't worry about that, overall productivity goes down quite a bit when people start working from home.

    Our office is having a conference call today to decide whether we work from home or no, and I reckon today or tomorrow will be my last day in the office for a week or two.

    I canít tell what is an over or under response anymore.
    This is my current status as well. I have now way to judge what is a reasonable attitude. So I'm just freaking out internally.

    My company just sent out a note that basically said "business as usual, wash your hands." I cannot tell if that's reasonable or not.

    It’s not vacancy if people are still paying rent

    We have switched to a rotating 50% of people work from home to decrease density downtown.

    Essentially maintain a rotating skeleton screw in the office, also acts as a stress test for our IT infra in case we move to 0% in the office.

    This shit is going to kill a lot of small businesses... How the fuck is a tire store supposed to operate from home? I still haven't figured it out.

    just send the tire machines home with them and the customers there then downsize the shop

    I've seen some interesting memos from service industry friends. There's some craziness going around. I blame legalized pot

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.
