    Even once the stay-at-home order is lifted, Newsom said society won't snap back to normal. For example, he said restaurants will likely have to limit capacity and face coverings in public will likely be common.

    "There's no light switch here. It's more like a dimmer," he said at a news briefing. "Normal, it will not be until we have herd immunity and a vaccine. You may be having dinner with the waiter wearing gloves and maybe a face mask...where your temperature is checked before walking in. These are likely scenarios."

    Newsom may take your temp rectally. Sound familiar?

    A major system in my area has officially banned sales reps until September 1. Right after, they announced the fall session for schools will continue to be online learning. No way the company will pay PMR’s to sit at home and do nothing.

    This could happen in highly impacted areas, but I do not think this will happen nationwide. We should get the reps out who are in these low impacted areas and get back to it as best we can.The patients will come before we know it. Also physicians will be needing to screen people the later part of the year for it to count towards their quality measures for 2020.

    The Quality Measure catch-up orders can be done by ISR’s more effectively and efficiently. PMR’s in this unprecedented environment are a waste of money and other valuable resources. I think Upper Management knows this as well and we’ll all find out soon.

    All b of your posts have the same theme. #1 You are trying to make it sound like PMRs are at home doing nothing which is stupid , because they are under a lot of pressure to get a certain number of calls and reach providers .
    #2 You keep putting nonsense on here that there will be no access for an eternity etc!
    I think you are part of the ISR team trying to discredit the only segment of this company that is generating revenue. Do you really think people can't see through this crap?

    Not me saying Face 2 Face meetings should be banned. Harvard Scientists. Bill Gates said no more work meetings either.

    Coronavirus social distancing may last for ‘TWO YEARS until 2022′ to stop new surges, Harvard experts warn.

    SOCIAL distancing may be needed well into the year 2022 to stop the coronavirus surging again, Harvard researchers have said.

    If self isolation measures are lifted all at once, the pandemic's peak could simply be delayed, and potentially be more severe when it does hit, scientists warned in a piece.

    "It'll be semi-normal until that vaccine is out there in billions of doses," he said, adding that "until you've got that vaccine widely used, life will still be not back to normal."

    There are some things, he said, that are unlikely to ever return to normal.

    "There are a few things, like business trips, that I doubt will ever go back," he said. It's simply a measure of necessity and risk, Gates said

    You’re getting paid to make sales calls in physical office locations. Those offices will be closed likely until the Fall if CV-19 doesn’t make a comeback which it looks very likely according to Dr. Fauci. Your role is not to make telephone calls all day while getting paid a Car Allowance and Gas.

    Remember when they said, even with social distancing, that 150,000 to 250,000 deaths were projected to occur? When are we just going to admit that this virus, although deadly, isn’t as deadly as we thought it was going to be? The impact on the economy and on people’s lives has been way out of proportion to the health risk this virus has shown to represent. Time for these “experts” to quit giving the same advice as if hundreds of thousands in the US will die. When all is said and done, CV will kill less than the flu this year (even thought flu deaths are now being reported as CV deaths). Time to quit being afraid and open things back up.

    I like this honest video game ceo about the timeframe of returning back to normalcy.


    "I don't think we've had the same challenges from a work from home perspective as other companies, but people are feeling the isolation, frustration and anxiety," Kotick admitted. He doesn't envision life returning back to normal until there's a low cost, widely available vaccine and testing.

    New York(CNN Business)Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick is using the CV-19 to (safely) get closer to his employees.

    Kotick revealed Tuesday that he gave out his personal phone number to 10,000 workers and said he "encouraged every single employee that has a concern that relates to their health care" to contact him. A "few hundred" have reached out so far, He told CNBC.

    Kotick said that luckily only a "small number" of the video game-maker employees have contracted CV19. He's using the pandemic to bolster the company’s healthcare options, including making private doctors available, paying for some employee drug co-pays, and offering telehealth options.

    KC is an attorney. He knows that’s a lawsuit waiting to happen should a rep contract CV-19 without adequate testing available or a vaccine. I don’t foresee reps in offices until Spring 2021.

    keep working it with your nonsense, but ISRs should be the first to go
    It's only logical
