Companies are wary of reopening offices due to the risk of exposing employees to Covid-19. They are also worried about their own legal exposure should staff get sick.
As Covid-19 cases surge in nearly every state, offices around the country have stayed largely closed or only partially reopened, and not just because of health concerns. For white-collar workplaces, the pandemic has required compliance with the kind of complex workplace-safety regulations that, until recently, applied more to industrial settings than to offices.
