Thirty years ago most office work was inextricably tied to a fixed office location. That was the analogue work world. With the broadband internet becoming available most anywhere combined with the computing power of mobile devices, most office work can be done from anywhere.
Despite these technological communication advancements coupled with the pandemic, many businesses are continuing to keep their physical office space intact for both the collaboration benefits of face-to-face interaction and the social benefits to their employees.

These new practices include greater distancing between work stations, plus the use of privacy tents and portable nooks. For more information on these safety practices, see this article by Randyl Drummer of CoStar News.
