DMHers at Home
When COVID-19 took over the world, the DMH office found itself mostly empty with a lot of modifications to its day to day hum of work. The first three months meant everyone was stuck at home. Now, the office is slowly but surely coming back to life. Or a new version of its former life.
With a team system for safely working in the office, you will find a skeleton crew on any given day. Those of us who need a break from our provisional kitchen table desks or mail delivery distractions come in twice a week. But the new normal of quiet rooms and masks isn’t all bad.
Every morning at 9 a.m., you can still hear Glen Campbell on the Sonos speakers at 1505 Genessee Street. And like clockwork, you can expect Led Zeppelin to fill your ears after lunch. Beer still flows through the kegs, and you are still likely to be unexpectedly blasted by the A/C while at your desk. Some things really never change.
Then there are the new traditions. Every Thursday, you can expect those in the office to order some kind of Asian cuisine for what’s been deemed “Special Lunch Thursday.” You can also expect a fully stocked fridge with the best canned beer money can buy (hello, Maplewood).
Even for those who are still at home, new pastimes have been adopted to break up the monotony of living in a COVID world. Like everyone else, DMHers have set out to find joy in the small things, make the most out of milestones and continue taking the year one day at a time. Here are a few things that have made life in 2020 just a little bit easier.
