Anyone finding it increasingly difficult to participate in huge family zoom calls? I feel bad for “missing” calls but I can’t handle talking w/ extended fam that sans covid I wouldn’t talk to but 1/yr

As production starts back up, is there a standard covid protocol? I assume masks, social distancing and disinfection are baseline. Are teams following this? As a freelancer what can I ask for?
I am a new mom and my kid is in daycare. My kid loves daycare and it works out great for our family, but I have been sick almost every month for the past year. Does this ever relent???
Anyone go to union station since the storming of the capitol? I have a friend staying with me from NYC and I’m worried about whether it’ll be safe for her to take the Amtrak (Friday at 6pm), thinking maybe she should stay another week with me to avoid any trump supporters and any potential risk of higher exposure to COVID from those unmasked people...
Been told I have to come back into office (in public building) full time starting on Monday, despite having seamlessly WFH for the last 3 months. Anxiety is through the roof and am just not ready for this, especially since my wife is 8months pregnant...not sure what to do 😔
40k coronavirus deaths in the US, and protestors are calling for shut-downs to end. Do people not know how serious this is? I predict the death toll will be over 100k when May is over.
Does anyone know anyone that had coronavirus - how was it like and what did they do to combat it?

I have a governmental entity client in Texas that wants to offer 6 weeks of paid parental leave for all employees, even those who aren’t eligible for FMLA. After the paid 6 weeks, the employee can choose to continue paid leave using any accrued personal leave.
Texas does not have a paid parental leave statute.
If paid leave above what is required is offered for parents, do we also have to provide the same benefit to other employees that are eligible for unpaid leave?
Has COVID affected your friendship (especially if you are an introvert)? I’m kind of an extreme introvert and has completely isolated myself from my core group of friends. Dynamics of our friendship has completely shifted in the last three month and I feel like I’m on the outskirts looking in which really sucks. Not sure what I’m trying to achieve with this post but I wanted to get this off my chest cause I’m feeling a bit down. Also making amends that I also have to put in the effort...
What do all these protestors do for a living? I don’t know anyone in my friend group who can afford to take off time from work or risk getting COVID-19

I’m a recent grad applying for entry level roles in the PR & Marketing industry. With the pandemic, companies are not looking to hire entry level roles or have stalled hiring since these require training besides from home. I recently interviewed for a cushy banker role and am debating if I really want to go down this route/industry. Any advice would be great or if I should just keep on keeping on with the job search?
This is so petty, but a partner just insisted, during an internal call, that she drafted a paragraph that I definitely 100% drafted. It didn’t feel significant enough to call her out on the call, but I hung up feeling really annoyed by it. I guess at least it was good drafting! Mostly, I’m annoyed bc she said it in a way to imply that “of course” she had to draft it because I suck. Im just venting.
My parents were nearing retirement and did not save enough throughout their life. My dad has been making six figures for about 30 years now. I don’t know how they didn’t save enough, but they expect me and my siblings to start making monthly payments to them in their retirement. Here’s the problem: they own three homes. I said no, I would not send monthly checks to them. If they want they can sell their homes and move in with me in retirement. Am I being selfish?
