With so many of us working at home during the COVID-19 crisis, it’s time to plan wisely and prepare for what could be a lengthy stay. That means taking precautions like organizing emergency phone numbers and contacts, having the right disinfectants and cleaners in our homes, and following the best possible safety measures. It’s also critical that we follow common-sense practices without overreacting.

This could mean different things to different people, but here are some guidelines:

  • Stock up smartly without hoarding or making unreasonable purchases that prevent others from getting what they need
  • Focus on healthy food and don’t look at this as an opportunity for in-home binging
  • Help others stock up, perhaps by making a trip for food and/or supplies
  • Clean your frequently used surfaces and practice safe hygiene throughout your home stay
  • Make a household action plan
  • Take extra precautions with any at-risk members of your family (e.g., elderly or immunocompromised)

Here’s some helpful information from Trello with great tips and advice on working from home:
