Yes, I foresee significant changes in working patterns.
Some people have discovered that they are much more productive when working at home and some employers have realised the truth of that.
Some people have discovered that they hate working from home and are longing to get back to the office.
Enlightened employers will find ways to provide flexible working systems so that relevant employees can choose to work always at home, always in the office or some combination of the two. (Forklift truck drivers and bricklayers will still probably have to attend their places of work.)
Unenlightened employers will lose out and eventually fail.
In other words, I think there will be some positive outcomes of this dreadful time. If we (society) don't learn the lessons we don't deserve them.
