    It's the same policy at my company for people traveling from overseas.

    When I return for Asia (I hope) in December, my boss reminded me that I would have to work from home for 14 days.

    It's also the same policy that many states are imposing. My August visit to the East Coast had to be canceled because I didn't want to quarantine for 14 days.

    It feels like a logical course of action.

    I love working remote, so wouldn’t bother me. I’ve actually been remote since March. Hoping it can be permanent.

    I've been working from the house since March also, but we just opened our offices two weeks ago, and now this. With that being said, working from home for two weeks after Vegas bender.......not a bad idea.

    My buddy works for a Japanese car company in their Pittsburgh, PA operations. They're thinking about moving him permanently to Osaka so that he won't have to routinely quarantine.

    I've been working remotely, my company has a "no travel" rule AND a quarantine requirement if you do travel.

    I've been home since March. Not sure when I'll be back in the office - much later and not often is my hope. I've been working remotely one day a week the past 12 yrs, it's easy in my job, I have a long commute, and I don't like being around people. I'm basically the happiest quarantined person I know....

    That would be tough to do, in the airline industry. My friends are traveling all over the place. :eek:

    I walked out of my company's office building March 11 and have been working from home ever since. There have been no announcements of any kind about employees coming back to the physical office for the remainder of 2020. Fine with me.

    Actually surprised Wisconsin didn't make your list. We are being banned from everywhere lately. Even though I am in a part of the state where it is pretty quiet. I believe now I can't even go visit my daughter in Chicago unless I quarantined upon arrival there for 14 days. I figured at some point I would drive to Harrahs in Joliet for a long weekend and spend a couple of days with her in Wrigleyville.

    I expected my issue would be that I would have to not go into work here for 2 weeks after coming back (been working at home since March anyway). Now it appears I can't even go there because I would have to quarantine upon arrival lol.

    We are a rural county with only a total of 44 cases. It's hard when we are lumped into the big city total.

    Well the firm updates daily states and regs for travel restrictions and quarantine orders. Wisconsin may not be there today, but don’t fret, you’ll make the list eventually! Lol!

    I have a little over 3 years until retirement, I'm hoping to work from home until then.

    Please remember our No Politics rule. You are free to discuss the issues in your states, but please refrain from political opinion about it.

    Suggesting your governor is equivalent to some fascist dictator, or suggesting your state is making up things is 1) Likely not true, and 2) A violation of our rules about politics.

Any message or thread that veers away from the topic of Las Vegas may be locked, moved and/or deleted without notice at any time. Any opinions on the government itself, its policies, practices, or laws is political discussion. All messages that contain political commentary, even in jest, will be deleted and an infraction will be issued.

    I have 230 people right now that work in the organizations I lead, in a company of around 15K employees. We have been WFH since mid-March. We have no clear timeline to return due to the changing landscape. It seems logical for your company to apply this measure as other companies have as well for travel scenarios.

    Some companies have some varying reach of those kind of risk management policies. A few companies I know of essentially deny employees going to XYZ location on vacation because it would force the WFH/quarantine. One of my peers' husbands has to report when and where my peer travels to his employer because he goes into the physical workspace. Those are the employer policies where lines get blurred real fast. They had to cancel a vacation SHE was taking on her own because they were going to make him WFH where compensation potential is much less (he is in sales).

    Both my husband and I work for universities. We are both home for the remainder of the year. He has to go in when he physically has to work with equipment but there is usually no one around when he does. I have not set foot in my office since March. I was working one day a week from home. I would like to make this permanent but will probably have to go in for at least a day or two a week once things get back to "normal". I have to say I kinda miss the goofy employee stuff we did like pie bake offs and holiday luncheons. That surprises me that I miss it.
