Re-purpose the shopping malls



Lots of office-oriented businesses, including government, are finding they don't have enough floor space to bring their employees back to work on-site and still maintain social distancing.

You know who has lots of floor space? Shopping malls.

As large retail stores close, that space could become an ideal telework hub for decentralizing business operations. A business or agency could set up social-distanced work carrels with secure communications lines, virtual meeting space, support staff and facilities. Employees who can't easily work from home might welcome a quiet, supportive environment near their neighborhoods to get back to work.

A reduced commute, plenty of parking, and a food court and convenient shops down the hall. There could even be space to accommodate children doing their schoolwork online. What's not to like?
