Well, I've finished up my first week of 'not working remotely from home'. I'm considered to be one of the essential people at my work place (academic library), so a few of us are coming in to work. It's actually been kind of nice to work in the quiet, although -- of course -- I hate the reason why we're having to do this. They extended spring break for an additional week, so we've had very few students around. We've also closed the campus (including our library) to all community users, so only those with a valid university ID can enter the building. Anyone who can work from home is urged to do so, but since I live alone, I'm pretty much just as isolated when I'm upstairs in my office as if I was at home. All classes are online beginning next week through the end of the semester, but some of our students don't have internet access at home, so we're staying open (just during the day right now, but might have an evening hour or so if we find that students can't get here before 5pm. No weekends until further notice, though). We've marked every other computer with an 'out of order' sign so that students who come in will be forced to sit a good distance from each other. We're also in a pretty big building with plenty of study tables for students to use without them being too close. Hopefully, the four or five of us who will be working (some will be rotating days and only coming in for one or two days a week and we're scattered on two floors) will be fine. We're distancing ourselves from the few students who have come in this week, and the feedback from downstairs is that a couple of them were a little put out that we asked them to step back a few steps as we help them with their books, questions, etc. I guess young people think they are immune to everything! 🙂
I have the option of working from home if I want, but the lure of being able to wear my grubby clothes, go barefoot, and play with the cats any time I want is outweighed by the fact that I have much more desk space at work, two monitors, and don't have to keep a detailed 'work log' of every bit of work I would be doing at home. On campus, it's just doing my regular job and not having to document everything.
