I’ve been working from home off and on for much of my career. Pre-COVID, I would have said I like the option to work from either home or office depending on things like what I had to do that day. I just took a job that is full-time remote so that option is off the table.
Here are some ways I’m changing up my remote work routine:

It’s day 2 of week 2 of the Coronavirus shutting down my local area. Working at home during a pandemic is an unfamiliar type of remote working even for me as an experienced remote worker. I’m still getting used to the relative silence outside since many of my neighbors are stuck at home.
Living and working in the Northern Virginia/Washington, DC area lately has been about watching the slow march of Coronavirus shutdowns in the federal government, local schools, and major employers. Thankfully, a job change at the end of last year already meant I was working from home a lot more.
