    Last month, a recently-reopened school district near Atlanta, Ga. told more than 1,000 students and staffers they had to quarantine after a coronavirus outbreak. Earlier this month, approximately 450 students and employees in a central Florida school system needed to isolate after positive COVID-19 cases. Almost 2,000 miles away, around 100 teenagers and staff in a Denver-area school had to do the same because of cases in their school. Rocky school reopenings are already upending educators’ plans this fall — and they’re likely doing the same thing to the work schedules of many parents who, if they aren’t already working from home, may suddenly need to be there with their quarantined student. The good news is there’s a...

    My return to the Washington Business Journal put the “home” in “homecoming.”  But it wasn’t the way I expected. I didn’t return to our offices with a bag of bagels in my hand and a get-to-know-you lunch on the books. I didn’t compliment Vandana on assuming the new editor’s office since taking on the role in my absence. I didn’t pop into the sales team meeting to brainstorm sponsors or locations for our next big event. I didn’t walk around the newsroom, sprinkling story leads I heard at breakfast. I didn’t schedule daily breakfasts and lunches with business friends and clients.  I stayed at home — and logged onto a Zoom call. And it was quite the adjustment — an...

    Amazon has announced plans to add 3,500 new corporate employees in six cities, including 2,000 in a new flagship New York City office, in a move that bucks the trends of companies and residents fleeing urban centers amid the pandemic and rising crime. The company said on Tuesday that it will expand its 'tech hubs' in Dallas, Detroit, Denver, Phoenix, and San Diego, and open a new office in Manhattan's Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue building. Due to the pandemic, Amazon is urging all of its employees who are able to work remotely to do so until at least January 8, an insider told DailyMail.com.

That is up almost 20% from a similar survey in early May. The latest was conducted July 10 and surveyed 284 U.S. employees.  Despite work burnout, the majority (59%) are taking less...
