Sooo, after an outbreak hit a centralized dispatch location for the overnight air express giant that I work for (rhymes with DefEx) and sent everyone home (and after two states mandated the same) the powers that be are finally allowing all those dispatchers who wish to work from home to do so effective 12/28. Until 2/1.
Because magic. The Rona threat will dissipate in 30 days. The email also detailed "New CDC Guidelines" regarding masking that in reality have been in place for months. Another example on how behind we are with regards to Covid: Our first official departmental email on masking protocol in our office went out on 8/3.
No, not 4/3 or 5/3 or 6/3 oooor 7/3. EIGHT/THREE.
But, hey- we are moving the vaccine now, so there's that. Essential employees and now being spun as "Heros."
