Ha, just talking to a fellow dog person. They forced her and the rest to the office. Then, they all got this recent Toronto covid. It's brutal for a week, and then a long recovery. I think this is BA5, and when they get better, and go back to the office, then it's BA6, and so on.
However, I don't think a classic office can go on forever with remote workers. They will all drift, and how do you deal with new staff? It just means the end of the classic office. Those big, under ventilated cubicle farms are the virus's wet dream. :)
