    Here's a quick question for Beyond:

    How many of you working in offices have been "forced back, so if you're sick it looks bad and nobody will believe you" and there is "zero rule enforcement and nobody is wearing masks or following any of the rules"? Do you guys also have "old fashioned guys in management at various companies who think it's a hoax, are anti-vaxxers, etc. and using that logic to determine company policy"? Are you guys "being asked to choose between their health and their jobs" and "rules are posted everywhere but it's just for optics and liability"?

    Thanks, asking for a friend.
    As far as I can tell, our voluntary phase 1 has very low adoption rate, probably because it's summer. Phase 2 starts in Aug and more people are told to come in if their area's retrofit is deemed ready. And I have not heard any resistance yet.

    We have hand sanitizers, cleaners, wipes, paper towel everywhere. And disposable mask is available as well since we mandate it.

    Again, given our daily questionnaire is designed to make sure staff follows CMOH 05-2020, I think that's the get out of jail free card if an employee did not answer that honestly and become a spreader.

    Has anyone who was a regular at the office employee talked to their employer about filling out a T2200?
    HR department at work will be filling them out for anyone that asks at my company.

    Nothing from our company yet. They say more info will be released in the fall so hoping that means they will fill out T2200 for us as well.

    Got a notice from our office, the mandatory mask bylaw won't have any impact since we already have to wear masks at all times besides our desk. Still planning everyone back to the office in September although 1-2 days a week max each. Seems odd to jump between office and WFH back and forth ... but at least our gym is open too so excited to use that one and stay away from the plebs at goodlife.

    Coming into the office 1-2 days a week is a colossal waste of time.

    You still have to do everything via teams since no one is reliably in the office. It’s literally the worst of both worlds.

    Yup, so stupid. On top we were allowed to take workstation peripherals home (surface docs/monitors/mouse/keyboard/etc) but those now need to be returned to the office, so people have to go buy their own setup. Not as big of concern since I already have a nice computer setup but lots of people are scrambling to go drop a few hundred on a home office now.

    But hey, at least we have a corporate discount at Memory Express and Apple now

    Corp discount at MemEx would be dangerous for me.

    When most stuff only have 3-5% margin, what's corp discount really buys at MemX? Cheaper warranty plans?

    Apparently some dipshit came to work with covid last week (not my company, just someone in the building) so we get to WFH until after the long weekend as a precaution.

    Must be nice.
    Coworker tested positive for Covid. Rest of floor notified 5 days later.
    Told not an issue, keep coming to office as no one was in close contact.
    Coworker back in office 10 days later.
    Outbreak imminent.

    Well this was 5 days later. Sounds like it was a contractor or courier or something based on how they worded it.

    If they are tested positive ain't they supposed to isolate for 14-21 days?

    I believe its 10 days from your positive test results. The assumption is the virus lasts 2 weeks but it takes ~5 days to build enough to test positive. So that'd still be at least 15 days from when they caught it. I'd def wait it out a few more days tho

    Coworker being back in the office is probably fine...everyone else? Not so much.

    Well is that really your call? AHS's call or employer's call?

    We officially delayed stage 2 back to office by 2 weeks because Calgary is lit and we may have had one incident in office. Don't know if he is tested positive, but if he is, he would be asymptomatic.

    AHS's call, which says 10 days after a positive test result.

    I do not see an issue with saying, "I will work from home for a few extra days because I was covid positive".

    Only if the job qualifies for WFH.

    Not everyone working downtown has the luxury of social distancing or WFH.
