Cubicle comeback? Pandemic will reshape office life for good

LONDON (AP) — Office jobs are never going to be the same. When workers around the world return to their desks, they’ll find many changes spurred by the pandemic. For a start, there will be fewer people as working from home becomes a more accepted practice. Workers who do go to the office will arrive in staggered shifts to avoid rush hour crowds. Staff might take turns working alternate days to reduce crowding. One-way paths will be laid out for better flow. Elevators could be limited to a few people at a time. Floor markings or sensors will remind people how far apart to stand. And there will be a lot more cleaning.
