With lower daily cases and an increasing number of fully vaccinated people, DC is seeing a new reopening phase. With reopening DC, Covid-19 related mandates have relaxed. The city has seen new initiatives to encourage business in the district. Restaurants are welcoming back customers at full capacity and the community has been incentivizing workers to visit small businesses. This new post pandemic world, while exciting to be returning to “normal”, is abundant in uncertainty.

According to NPR, there have been discrepancies amongst employees on whether they want to return to an office. On one hand, some people say they have thrived working from home. They argue that not only do they save time from commuting, but skipping the formalities of working in an office improves their productivity. On the other hand, others find the separation from work and home more beneficial. Developing relationships in person, and having a designated place to work seems to be a better fit for some. This discrepancy is causing conflict within companies. According to Bloomberg, some employees would rather quit their job than go back to the office. This forces companies to be strategic in their next moves amid reopening DC.
