Things that will definitely change (or have changed already)

WFH is here to stay

Low/No touch objects in offices

Telemedicine means fewer actual trips to the doctor’s office and thus less time away from work

Office open floor plans are toast

People will be banned for coming into the office while ill

Better Exercise/Yoga at Home Options

Things that might change

Better arguments for paid sick time and Medicare for all

More focus on mental health?
