London office we’re all working like nothing has happened, no precautionary measures, just that they’ll ‘keep us informed’! It’s worrying tbh given other companies are being more proactive. Hope they don’t regret it...

Right? I guess they don’t care about the health of workers until it’s too late

I recently launched two remote Airbnb rentals (duplex) and booked $15k of stays for March and April. Does anyone have any operational advice? Did not expect it to blow up like it has. I’ve smart outfitted the home with Nest and am using Hospitable and Pricelab. Also have a decent cleaner who’s dependable.

As more and more companies institute a work from home policy, I think it will gradually become the norm.

I’d prefer to be closer to major economic hubs and not too remote.

Any experiences? I WFH with a toddler right now and a $150 sleeveless maxi isn’t my style 😂

Apartment lease ending soon. Been living here for a year with my roommate who is a nurse. When my firm started WFH in mid-March, she got transferred to the COVID unit. I was fortunate enough to move home to parents to ride this out and give her space. We get along well as roommates and I’ve been rooting for her everyday. I want to move back to the city and resign our apartment but I am worried about my health given preexisting condition. I’m thinking about solutions, but I feel very selfish.
