Black on black, there you go. Alright, so let’s go ahead and jump into the first segment of the show.
Okay, so let’s jump into Workplace 2.0 and set the stage for the reality of where we are today as a result of the pandemic and the impacts of that, as far as getting back into the office. We’ve got a couple of visual aids here that those of you on the videocast can see, in the podcast we’ll do our best to describe these as much as we can. Obviously, the pandemic is very dynamic, it’s changing by the day, by the week, and by different geographies, so here we’re looking at a couple of graphs over a two-week period, this was based on John Hopkins’ data and also was visualized by McKinsey. You see on the left side, we have June 22nd, and the various levels of the presence of COVID cases and the increase of the presence of COVID cases by a state-by-state level. On the right-hand side, we see that same view two weeks later, obviously a different color scheme here, on the left-hand side, we have a number of states that are in the kind of middle blue range, which indicates the 0.1% to 0.2% prevalence of the COVID cases, and then we fast forward to July 4th. And the number of those states, roughly about 12 of them have increased into the highest category, the deepest blue you see here, which is 0.3% or higher.
So those are states such as Nevada, California, New Mexico, Louisiana, Texas, Florida, and many others. So a definitely dynamic view of how things are changing on a week-by-week basis. If we move on to our next graphic, we’re looking at another two maps, this is looking at where we are today relating to restrictions at a state level, and then on the right-hand side, the status of reopening. This is a little bit more current. The left-hand map about restrictions is from The Washington Post, and you see the majority of states out there are in the full reopening process itself, but a number of states like Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Arkansas and Alabama, on the right-hand side are pausing their actual reopening.
So they’re kinda taking this pause with what they’re doing, and then we have a whole another layer of states that are actually going backward, they’re reversing some of their opening activities and processes. That’s states like California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Florida and Michigan. So a big swathe of the country on the southern side and a little bit in Michigan up in the North are happened to take a step back. So we happened to look at this map a few weeks ago for a summit that we did, and it looks even dramatically different than it did then it does I should say today, three or four weeks ago, so very dynamic situation. Pranav, maybe you could take us through where we are as it relates to getting back in the office from a pandemic perspective.
