Friday, March 20th, 2020. The day we cleaned and closed our Coventry office and headed home for an uncertain future.
This was the day we said our goodbyes to friends, colleagues, and family members and waited to find out what Covid-19 would do to us next. With case numbers on the rise, the only thing we could be was proactive and protect ourselves and those around us. Thankfully, at Coventry, we’d been planning for this eventuality and took the very heavy decision to close the office. A matter of days later the instruction came from Government that all non-essential workers were to work from home, if they could, and to remain inside.
So started the three-year journey we’ve all been on.
Here’s what I wrote about this same journey after one year – March 2021 / One Year – and after two years – March 2022 / Two Years
