March 20th, 2020. Friday.

A day I will never forget.

On this day we did no work, but we were all in the office. A day we’d planned for but never really thought would happen.

We were generally quite upbeat and the mood was light but we knew it was a serious thing we were doing and that we didn’t know when we were coming back.

We’d been planning for a few different eventualities as we read about the different ways Covid was affecting people and communities.
