The latest estimate is for 15% of Manhattan office workers to return by the end of 2020. This is substantially lower than the same estimate of 26% made in August. The fear of a second wave and several outbreaks around the city are to blame for the delay.
When asked about factors involved in the continuation of work from home policies, employers mentioned vaccine availability, a testing strategy, and the safety of the office environment as top considerations.
Many offices and coworking spaces are adapting to the new normal – with social distancing policies, temperature checks, hand sanitizer readily available and upgraded HVAC systems.
