Seattle is in the midst of one of the largest work from home trials in the largest work-from-home trials in recent corporate history. The COVID-19 outbreak has caused may of our large employers, including Microsoft, Nordstroms, Expedia, Fred Hutch, and Amazon, to advise their employees to practice social distancing and stay away from the office at least until the end of the month. I was remote through most of 2017 and in that period I quickly learned that being remote for a sustained period is very different than the occasional WFH day. Through that experience I developed a set of best practices that made that experience work for me, which may help others that found out this morning that their physical presence is not requested.
