The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many changes to life in 2020, and office life is no exception. Some businesses have begun opening back up again, but there are a number of changes that need to be made in order to make everything safe.

Below, you’ll learn some things to consider when reopening your office. Specifically, we’ll talk about having conversations with your employees, preparing the office itself, and the advantages of renting a storage unit. We hope this helps as you reopen your office.

Bringing Employees Back Into The Office

In order to open your office back up, you’re going to need to have conversations with your employees to determine their own comfort level. Depending on their age or current health, they may need to stay in quarantine longer.

Ultimately the timeline for employees coming back will have to be done on a case-by-case basis.

Preparing The Office

There are a number of precautions you’re going to want to take before allowing employees back into the office. You’re likely going to want to have office hand sanitizer, and you’re also going to want to make sure everyone’s chairs and desks are separate enough so as to comply with social distancing guidelines.

Finally, you’re going to want to make sure your office has the best airflow possible. COVID-19 is an airborne disease, so a lack of circulation can vastly increase the risk of an infection spreading.

Rent a Storage Unit

In order to comply with social distancing guidelines, there’s a significant chance that you’re going to need to remove some furniture from the office. This makes room for everyone to stay apart from each other.

That said, you may not want to get rid of this furniture. Whether you want to have it because it matches everything else in the office or you just like a piece and don’t want to get rid of it, a storage unit can help you keep any excess furniture until you’re ready to use it again.
