“Our cleaning lady just called and told us she will be working from home”

The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak led to many people working from home—but did that include cleaning ladies?

“Our cleaning lady just emailed to say she’ll be working from home for the next few weeks. She sent through instructions” was posted on Twitter by Lance Forman on March 15, 2020. “Our cleaning lady just called and told us she will be working from home. She will send us instructions on what to do” was posted on Facebook by ‎Mimi Pretoriouss a little later on March 15, 2020.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak is an ongoing global outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China on 1 December 2019, spreading to every province-level administrative division of the country by 29 January 2020. On 30 January, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern following an increase in the number of cases outside China.
