My wife, (TSO to the under-initiated) is also the HR mana for a company one


tenth the size of yours. They also can easily WFH.

They moved from all WFH to 1 day a week back in July and were set to do two days back in-office September 1 until two weeks ago an employee who'd been back at work on the previous week's in-office day tested positive after being around everyone at work. Employee's doctor has now already cleared employee to return to in-office work. But nobody wants to come back.

This is a very close-knit, professional internationally-oriented business, and most of the employees have worked together 21 years since the business' inception. They liked each other a lot pre-pandemic and worked exceedingly well with each other, but social media has endowed them now with such a variety of diverse and mostly unprovable options that they can't trust being around each other now.
