Anyone else’s office staying 100% open even after someone tests positive for covid, or is it just mine?

My office has never closed…Not that I think it was a good idea. I definitely rode the WFH train for a while. But yeah we have had people test positive and then they just stay home until they are negative.

Yeah my firm has done this. At the beginning of the pandemic they closed the whole office for a day and hired a company to do some sort of extremely deep disinfecting. Now they just do contact tracing and send home only those people who may have been exposed.

My old firm (emphasis on “old”) never allowed WFH despite having full remote capabilities. Multiple people got covid and each time we wouldn’t even know until a day or two after the fact, along with a promise that the office would be “deep cleaned” at night (something we couldn’t see or verify, or tell any cleaning had been done). The person with covid would get to WFH after they tested positive.

Yep - affected person only stays home. No contact tracing, no wfh.

Haha yes. Once the vaccine was wildly available then we were all kinda forced back in

Looking for some advice from fellow fishes here. How important do you all think it is to have a second baby ? We have a 2 year old now and we are trying for our 2nd. We have been trying for over a year now and started fertility treatment recently. I am not looking forward to IUI, IVF etc especially since we don’t have any much help and my husband and I both have full time jobs. Is it a deal breaker for our kid not to have a sibling ? Is it going to be worth the pain to go through fertility?

Associate in the NY office of a magic circle firm. Been really struggling with mental health issues for a long time - I feel like I’m begging for guidance/supervision and not getting any, and can’t get any support junior-wise either. I just get told I’m doing a “good job” but I’m pretty sure that’s just because no one is looking. Is the expectation just to magically figure out how to get things done solo, even if it’s the first time to do it? Is it better at NY-HQ firms that have more resources?

It’s looking like my job is gonna start asking us to return to the office. We have an open office plan and before we wfh FT I would save all my work for my telework days bc I can’t get shit done in the office. I’m having major anxiety about them making this decision. I know I’m not alone that people don’t want to return to the office. My ADHD and the open office just makes working from the office a nightmare and I’m feeling really nervous and kind of resentful.
