I live in a western US state that is still under stay-at-home orders except for essential business and the slow roll out of other industries. Recently I was upset hearing some employees talking about hanging out with friends the night before and then making plans for an upcoming birthday party. I did playfully scold them, saying I would have a drink at home to celebrate their birthday and remind them they should be staying home when not at work. I know the stay at home and social-distancing is wearing on people. I also know we can't control employees’ lives outside of work. But it’s these sort of activities that will extend our virus problems. This is so frustrating and makes me more nervous about attending work and whether we’re doing enough at our company to prevent an outbreak.
Anyone else having this problem? Anyone have thoughts or advice?
