I returned to work after taking two weeks of vacation time. The only significant change is concerning management policy on absences. From early March through May you could come in or not, management wouldn’t count it against you. Now, starting June 1, only people with preexisting health conditions can remain off, and only then with a doctor’s note.
On the streets things are opening back up. I’m seeing much more traffic, cars and pedestrian, as people try to get back to their regular lives. As for masks, I see far fewer of them, at work and on the streets. I believe many people are realizing how stupid our overreaction to this was, and how the government and media played them for fools. I would like to hope that as least some of those people won’t allow themselves to be played again.
I still don’t personally know anyone that contracted the Chinawuhanbatsoupvirus, or at least knew it.
More updates to follow.
