Desktop Shields, Partitions and Screens: Our Temporary Normal?

With many white-collar workers returning to the office, employers and workspace companies are looking for quick solutions to implement physical distancing protocols.

Office furniture and supply firms have been quick to stock these products — such as clear desktop shields, panels, and partitions retailing for $229.

The CDC recommends installing transparent shields or other physical barriers to separate employees when distancing isn’t an option. This will lower the chance of respiratory droplets from someone who is infected landing on someone else.

Of course, soap and hand sanitizer are also a must at various points throughout the workplace.

These measures aren’t attractive, but they’re practical, and provide a quick win solution to help people feel more confident about returning to the workplace.
