“My firm has said go in or I am fired.”

“Dear PoPville,

I have seen posts about when people will return to the workplace, but I would like to hear from those who have already returned.

My client wants me back in the office full time. The Agency remains at maximum-telework. I have asthma (client is aware). The Contract Manager has advocated for us to only go in 1 day per week. Now my entire team must go in 4 days per week.

Our open-space office has many maskless employees crowding the walkways and elevators. I have been asked to remove my mask at my desk. My firm has said go in or I am fired. My boss has outright stated they believe “COVID is overhyped and may not be real”. I am not sure I have any further recourse. Any advice for staying COVID-free?”
