WeWork has devised a plan to keep the tenants renting its office space safe as the U.S. economy reopens from a shutdown meant to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company, whose business model relies on small firms renting shared office space, will increase its sanitization procedures, prioritize personal space and post signs with health guidelines.
"While distancing may be part of our new normal, collaboration and connection remain more important than ever — and having a safe place to do that is essential," WeWork said. "We want our members to know that they can make WeWork part of their day and still feel comfortable being with friends and family outside of work."
The move comes as local governments slowly loosen stay-at-home restrictions to get the now-battered economy back up and running.
