The Tentative Commuter’s Guide To Going Back Into The Office

Table of Contents

After over a year spent at home, many of us are starting to reenter workplaces and schools under an array of new hybrid formats. And now — with cases of the Delta variant on the rise and the CDC implementing new mask guidelines for vaccinated people — our return to this post-pandemic work/study life is still uncertain. But, for employees and students who are planning to stow away those sweatsuits after 16+ months of trying to do work from home, we’re here to talk products that will help you prep for re-introducing a big commute back to your life.

We’ve lined up a hit-list of essentials that will help you have a safe and stylish trip. Are you an office-goer who’s looking to avoid public transportation? A fresh set of wheels (plus a cute helmet) might be what you need. How about for those of us riding subways and buses? We’ve got travel-sized sanitizing sprays, conveniently compartmentalized laptop bags, comfy shoes suitable for all-day wear, travel mugs, and more to keep you well-equipped. Click forth into our guide for more of everything you need to go “back.”

The pandemic is still ongoing, and our understanding of the best safety practices is continuing to evolve. For the latest recommendations and guidelines, we suggest visiting COVID-related resources provided by your local health department, the WHO, and the CDC, and staying up-to-date about your rights in the workplace. For more news about COVID and how it affects our lives, check out Refinery29’s reporting on the pandemic here.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
