The past half a year was full of challenges for teachers, students, and parents alike. Between quarantine-induced homeschooling and digital classrooms, everyone had to adapt to radical changes whether they were ready or not. Now it's all about safe reopening. In this blog post, we talk about the important role of Facility Managers in this process.
When the University of Washington's Recreation Facility Management signed up for Maintenance Care in fall 2019, they didn't know how valuable that decision would prove very soon. Within half a year, remote work order tracking became much more than a convenient gadget: an essential tool to keep business running from a distance during an unprecedented lockdown situation.
CoVid-19 has forced most of the world into full isolation mode. As unfortunate as the situation is – having fewer people in your facilities can be an advantage for performing maintenance.
In a matter of weeks, CoVid-19 has turned from a distant tale to a public concern right in front of us. The WHO has recently declared to outbreak a pandemic. That's a big step, but most importantly, that means that due diligence is necessary to get back control. You can do your part to save the day.
