Adjusting.

Nobody I know in person has the disease, but one person on my LJ friends list does; you are in my prayers.

I work in IT support, and my job is one of those that are potentially telecommutable. I've never had a great desire to work from home (I enjoy the routine of going to the office and interacting with people) but it is likely that I will be asked to work from home in the near future. That will certainly have some positives: I'll save bus fare and commute time, and I suppose I'll come to enjoy working from the comfort of my own room.

I suppose telecommuting is one of those trends that will be accelerated by the COVID-19 outbreak.
