Economic Action Steps — Office Setting

Offices include a very wide array of different types of businesses, and not all businesses that use office settings have been affected the same way. Under stay-at-home orders, workers who had the ability to telecommute pivoted quickly to working from home, and business meetings, conferences, and seminars went online. A long-term reduction in traditional commuting patterns has also affected businesses that cater to office workers, such as coffee shops, drycleaners, and bars.
