Richard Leland elaborated on the measures that landlords are taking as businesses reopen in the New York area following the shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Real Estate Board of New York released guidelines for commercial buildings calling on landlords to stock up on cleaning supplies, spread out seating in common spaces, and require people entering a building to wear masks and have their temperature taken.
Leland added that companies are contemplating staggered shifts, which could take a number of forms. Some people could come in Mondays and Wednesdays, he said, while others would come in Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays could be remote days for all, for fairness.
