New elevator etiquette, desk manners: Welcome to the post-Covid workplace

Hygiene privacy is likely to be the norm in the post-pandemic corporate world

Once the lockdown is lifted and you get back to office, things may look different at your workplace.

For starters, you may be thermally scanned at the gate, and will have to file into office in disciplined lines maintaining distance from others. Inside, you will have to learn new elevator etiquette. No more crowding near the lifts or barging in. And you may find that your desk is no longer as close to your neighbour’s, as hygiene privacy becomes the new buzzword.
