Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted lives and livelihoods around the globe. Beyond its direct impacts on health, the pandemic has profoundly impacted work arrangements. Workers and their employers discovered that many work tasks could be done remotely. Impacts of the pandemic on supply chains, coupled with international tensions, labour shortages, and other changes, are further changing work practices in ways that are still unfolding. This is also changing commuting patterns with potentially far-reaching impacts for health. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, commuting to work was a necessary, daily activity for many, if not most, workers engaged in modern economic activity.
