Can company ask for a COVID positive test results? HR is asking for "tracing" purposes. I don't really care to provide as I don't think they mean anything negative, but thought maybe I should be aware of what is allowed or not at least.
Which firms have strong public sector strategy practices outside of McK and BCG? Thinking in terms of projects such as digital strategy for a federal agency, COVID response plans, K-12 education restructuring roadmap Not so much PMO or tech implementation projects
Is the M&A pipeline drying up for 2020? Worried about the impact of coronavirus and extended time on the bench. Already on the bench for 2 weeks, know some folks who've been benched since Jan.

Remember when Mitch McConnell called the Covid pandemic a "Blue State Problem"? Well, it looks as if the virus decided to switch parties.
I am so conflicted about socializing during COVID. My friend invited me to a dinner with two new people (who work at the big 4) at an outdoor restaurant. Where I live, the COVID rate is ~3%. My friend invited the group chat and the two other girls shamed my friend for socializing in a small group during COVID. My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️

Question that I don’t have a decisive answer for yet - if I already had COVID last spring (almost exactly a year ago), should I still get the vaccine now? Should I only get one shot instead of two? Should I just wait? Thanks in advance.
Giving my buddy a ride in my car (first time post Covid). Should I make him sit in the back? Social distancing reasons.
Thoughts on employers mandating employees get vaccinated? Colleges are now making the covid vaccine a requirement if you want to attend college. Looking like employers are going to start doing this as well (some have already started).
Under-reaction, appropriate amount of action, or overreaction to the Coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. Please just choose one, curious what the people think!
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.
