End of Lockdown Roadmap
It is almost a year since our lives have been turned upside down by the novelty virus that was to be SARS-CoV-2 mostly known as the Covid-19 virus! #WFH – working from home was to become one of the most trending hashtags and companies had to re-evaluate their IT processes in order to make sure their employees could work securely from the comfort of their homes and at the same time taking care of their customers, offering them the best service they could.
As winter is coming to an end and spring is set to take over the post-lockdown roadmap is laid out before us. This roadmap already brings a renewed sense of optimism across the country, with the UK vaccination programme paving the way for easing the current restrictions. As schools, colleges, and universities reopen, parents regain their equilibrium and hand back their home-schooling duties to teachers who we now view as saintly!
