As the year comes to a close, we reflect on all that happened in 2020. With the pandemic came changes to how we learn, work, and socialize. When COVID-19 came to the U.S., MooreCo got to work to quickly provide solutions for students to keep learning and workers to keep producing. We hosted our first webinar in June and our second in October, featuring panelists in the fields of medicine, design, and education. We closely followed the trajectory of the virus and how it was affecting the back-to-school season. We learned a lot in 2020 about COVID-19, about remote learning and working, and about how to thrive in a pandemic and we want to share our findings with you.
