Not so fast, Boss: As COVID-19 cases spike in Texas,
more delay their return to the office
A reason for caution: 1 in 4 workers is vulnerable to severe illness, including 7,000,000 Texans.
By Michael Schnurman – Dallas Morning News
Now surging in Texas, COVID-19 is interrupting our plans again, prompting many businesses to slow their return to a new normal.
A month after Texas announced Phase 2 of reopening the economy and a few weeks after starting Phase 3, the state’s number of COVID-19 cases has climbed steadily to over 100,000. Hospitalizations are hitting new highs, too, and that metric can’t be attributed to simply conducting more tests.
These trends, combined with other risks, have many employers reworking their timelines for bringing workers back to the office.
“One says they are staying home longer because their younger employees have been going out to bars,” said Angela Farley, Chief Operating Officer for the Dallas Regional Chamber. That executive “didn’t want her older workers interacting with them, so they’re staying home until the case count comes down.”

It looks simple on your To Do List. Renew our commercial lease, find new office space, rent a warehouse, lease flex space, buy an office or industrial building, maybe with a low interest SBA 504 Loan. In reality, it doesn’t happen quickly and it’s usually not so simple. That’s because Commercial Leases and Purchase Contracts are surprisingly complicated business agreements.
In commercial transactions, the devil is definitely in the details. MacLaurin Williams sweats the details to ensure that projects get done correctly, affordably and on time for Tenants and Owner-Occupants.
We are exclusive, 100% Tenant Representatives and Buyer Representatives. We perform as true advocates and loyal fiduciaries for businesses, professional practices, non-profits and government agencies in commercial transactions. Using the latest market research, we unlock the leverage that’s needed to negotiate hard but artfully to secure the best economic terms and conditions for Office and Industrial Tenants and Owner-Occupants.
Typically, we save our Clients 10% to 25% off of Landlords’ asking rental rates and Sellers’ initial prices.
MacLaurin Williams Worldwide’s highly experienced Tenant Reps, Tenant Agents and Tenant Brokers deliver 100% Tenant and Buyer Representation in Denver and Boulder, Colorado, and in major US, Canadian and international markets. See this interactive map of our global service areas.
In North America, the Landlord or Seller typically pays our fee, not the Tenant or Buyer.
This means MacLaurin Williams doesn’t have the awful conflicts of interest that regular Commercial Real Estate Brokers quietly carry in their briefcases. It’s the dirty little secret they really don’t want to talk about. But we openly air things out in our highly ranked blog article, How to identify the best Commercial Tenant Agent.
