As Victorians start heading back to work in a bid to reclaim normality over the coming months, how different will life in the office be?
With new guidelines in place, businesses are strategizing on ways they can adapt their offices to comply with social distancing and hygiene rules.
For many businesses, hot desks are frequently used.
This means office workers use whatever desk is available rather than having a particular seat.
Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy said that “hot desking would have to be done in a different way”.
“If you are doing hot desks or sharing common spaces, frequent cleaning. We want cleaning products everywhere. We want staff to have a responsibility for hygiene. Hand sanitiser everywhere,” he said.
