So one company posted their guidelines about reopening the office, and the first bit is:

"Start with empathy: Everyone will have different levels of comfort being among other people in the office..."

And it occurs to me this is good advice _all the time_, regardless whether we think the office will make us sick. Some of us find working in a crowded, potentially noisy office stressful and draining, and people who find the office invigorating need to understand that.

"There will be stickers provided that you can wear to share your current level of comfort."

Oh, yeah. "Stressed by a crowded work space, please take your conversation to a meeting room." "Uncomfortable in large meetings where I have to compete to be heard." "Lunch is my quiet-time, please don't be offended if I decline your invitation today."

These are the stickers I need.
