Highlights from: “Preparing to Emerge During COVID-19 Pandemic”

by Allecia Harley, MPH on May 4, 2020

Like you, I’m learning as I go on how to navigate working, parenting, and recharging from home. Meanwhile, some states are beginning to re-open their businesses and offices. Here are some practical tips for you to think about and consider in your planning as you prepare to emerge through the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Determine who needs to return to the office. Establish levels of operation and who needs to be in the office to accomplish them. Until effective testing, vaccines and treatments are available, there will still be health risks and office capacity will be limited.
  • Prepare for regular COVID-19 Pandemic testing and fever checks before entry. Think through the time this process will take and whether your colleagues will need to arrive early to go through it. Start looking for equipment and supply sources. Determine who will do the testing and checking.
  • Accept changes in appearance and behavior. Some of your colleagues will have gained or lost weight; their hair may be grayer, a different color, shorter or longer; they might dress differently; they might be stressed; they might be pregnant. They might be sensitive about their new appearance, so tread carefully.
  • Establish or update processes for keeping work-from-home colleagues informed and engaged.
  • Set an easy schedule for the first few days. It may take some of your colleagues a few days to re-adjust to office life since the COVID-19 pandemic.
