    I was using this and then changed it to a pub setting, been trying to get a lap dancing club video to work:

    I had a very fine bar photo. I think it was from the Mandrake Hotel in London.

    I haven't tried gifs. That will be dangerous...

    How will office blocks work above ground floor where neither the elevators or stairs allow social distancing and have obvious hotspots where people will be pushing buttons or opening doors?

    One solution is to wear biohazard suits in public areas. Any in stock on Amazon yet?
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Remain two metres apart and close “communal spaces” ?

    How does that work with toilets? Guess people will have to go back to dark ages and crap out the window.

    "Frequently bought with gloves" but what about the full face gas mask of suitable quality?

    Depends on the size of the office i'd imagine, small start up/ agencies could probably get away with it but those offices in large buildings will most definitely need some sort of rota in place to limit the amount of people in the office.

    Germany might, possibly, have it sorted:

    Germany’s labour minister Hubertus Heil is working on legislation that would give employees the right to work from home, even after the current crisis when social distancing will be no longer needed.

    “Everyone who wants to and whose workplace allows it should be able to work in a home office, even when the coronavirus pandemic is over,” Heil told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

    About 25% of Germans are now estimated to be working from home, up from about 12% normally.


    Heil said he would table legislation later in the year to enshrine the right to work from home in law, even full-time if that is what employees want.


    Finance minister Olaf Scholz, like Heil a Social Democrat, expressed approval for the idea.


    “The past weeks have shown how much is possible in the home office, this is a real achievement that we should not just abandon,” he told the paper.

    I think the key point there, shame this isn't in the WFH thread, is "if the employee wants to". There is a real risk that companies could force people to WFH even if it's not suitable for the worker.
