That's what I was thinking when I read that suggestion. Even if I do get in my car at exactly the same time as the person parked next to me, we're still 8-10 feet apart from each other, outdoors, for like maybe five seconds, wearing masks per company policy. (I suppose if one is backed in and one isn't, driver's doors could be facing, so you just wait in that case, which is what you would do anyway...)
Maybe I should check the latest CDC guidelines to see if maybe my car can cough on another car when they're parked next to each other.
But I digress. I just wanted to share that my company seems to be going about things in a relatively sane and cautious manner. They haven't made an official policy about extending WFH time for parents with young children who are impacted by government enforced school and daycare shutdowns. Unofficial policy sounds like they're going to evaluate case by case and let those employees extend WFH.
I'm a little worried that unofficial policy means that individual managers will factor into the decision making. While my general opinion of most people I work with is that they're good people, I can think of a couple I do not trust to make logical decisions.
