    Default Coronavirus Workplace thread

    I assume many places will be instituting work from home policies soon. Anybody preemptively working from home right now due to the virus?

    I work at a dealership. Work from home will never happen in this trade. Hell, even when your sick or break your leg, they be asking if your coming in the next day or not....and theres been no mention of any new cleaniless policies regarding Covid19.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    I'm in Fixed Ops. So on that side, I do see less appointments and people servicing their cars than usual. But that could be also due to economy, people are broke after Christmas, vacation season. Jan/Feb are always our slowest months. Should start ramping up soon when people bring out their AMGs...

    I'm working in the Suncor building, it's pretty much all everyone's been talking about today.

    My company told us we can all wfh if we want to... not too many people are so far, but I expect that to change. Nothing mandated yet.

    I like the idea of a company getting employees to work from home for a day just to make sure they can get everything running properly at home if needed.

    Also in the suncor building. Haven't really heard much besides they sent a a hundred people or so home to work from there (presumably any parents of kids in the daycare).

    Still waiting to hear more.

    I am on the west end of DT, just today one of our VP's went around ensuring we all have our VPN access set up properly in case we decide to work from home

    ES I can’t believe you booked me for a coffee right by that death trap of a building

    Haha

    We actually got banned from going to either Eau Claire or the Suncor building. No non essential travel. And we have a town hall this morning on some topic. Wondering if we get permission to largely work from home which would be awesome.

    Honestly with all the hysteria around this flu my sarcasm detector is broken.

    I can’t tell what is an over or under response anymore.

    Does anyone see the irony in holding a townhall right now? Could it not be an email?? haha

    Some guy that sits next to me just spent 3 weeks in India (and I'm not sure where between here and there) and is back in the office on his first day back. This is why this shit is spreading so fast.

    I know Suncor had the infected day care but why Eau Claire?

    A lot of people work from home anyways(where I work/Insurance). We have to take our laptops home daily so if a event occurs, we can still function.
    There are contingency plans, but in a nutshell.... Don't come in and log in from home.

    We are a pretty small shop lol, our town hall is likely fewer people than the average big co water cooler line. We are welcome to call in if we desire.

    Dunno apparently there was a report of an infection at Eau Claire, which happens to be quite close to us. I just know what I’m told.
