Chair and Professor, Startup CTO in Education, 5,001 - 10,000 employees
Instructor will be vaccinated before large classes will be back in-person. Students will be vaccinated before classrooms can be fully utilized. Before then, a reduced capacity at least 50% will be reinforced.
Senior Director in Healthcare and Biotech, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
Does not change. We are basing our strategy similar to that of the states we operate. We did not want people back if they still need to wear masks.
CIO in Education, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
It will definitely factor into the overall timeline and perhaps to what percentage we allow back at the initial return.
CIO in Energy and Utilities, 11 - 50 employees
Vaccination plans in Mexico are uncertain so we're still in lockdown and will be for an unknown period of time
Group IT Manager Operations in Construction, 5,001 - 10,000 employees
Will help things go back to NORMAL faster
Chief Information Officer in Manufacturing, 10,001+ employees
Right now, the vaccine is on a volunteer basis. We have essential workers on campus for now and have plans to go back close to all on campus for the fall.  The impact has been minimal at this point.
Head of IT in Manufacturing, 201 - 500 employees
We don’t have access to the vaccine yet, but depending on the future regulations, it could be a must for our traveling technicians
Director of IT in Healthcare and Biotech, 501 - 1,000 employees
We're a specialist medical organization and COVID truly only impacted us back in March 2020 when our state had a full lockdown measure. Since then we've been open with only the best/latest strategies to keep our staff and patients safe. As for the (hopeful) near future full re-opening of society we intend to continue the majority of our strategies (masks, cleaning, less guests with patients, and so on) until we reach the CDC guidelines for vaccine-induced herd immunity.
CTO in Finance (non-banking), 11 - 50 employees
We have been talking to companies about this for a while. Most businesses that do not absolutely need people back are putting it off. Initially, we were hearing second quarter but now we are hearing fall.

We are piloting our system with small, customer-facing businesses to help complying with reopening regulations for safety and reporting. The main focus is staff health assessments and customer contact tracing. For residential facilities and schools, we also assess residents/students. We are also discussing additional assessments to gauge how people are feeling as they reenter.
