Although we’ve all been working from home for over a year now, it doesn’t mean we’re entirely used to it. Remote work will always have its challenges: slow internet, chaotic surroundings, the hot weather, and an assortment of animals making noises outside your window. Sometimes it’s next to impossible trying to work. Take a break from your WFH set-up and ease yourself back into office life. Or at least an imitation of it by staying at a co-working space.
Before you decide to pay any one of these co-working spaces a visit, you should first consider your safety. Staying in air-conditioned and enclosed spaces give you a higher chance of being exposed to the virus since the air circulates. So before you pick your spot, contact these spaces and ask them about their measures against COVID-19 and make sure you wear your masks properly for the duration of your stay.
