The ‘new normal’ is here for businesses in our physical distancing world. What will work and the economy look like in our post pandemic world?
The Canadian economy shed almost 2 million jobs in April on top of the one million lost in March. Provinces are slowly opening up from the imposed lockdown, and despite Ontario and Quebec grappling with the need for more testing, they are moving ahead with lifting restrictions on businesses and resuming operations. What might that look like? Strict safety protocols will likely be in place to protect customers and employees. The challenge will be large office buildings which will have adapt.
This pandemic has dealt a vicious blow to the economy, but some see opportunities for businesses in the new normal.
