Team Building under Shelter-in-Place

Like many of us, my team at the office went to remote work with about 8 hours notice. We were fortunate on our team of eight, that in that we already had folks working in offices in other states so the idea of communicating with each other using tools like Slack and Zoom wasn't entirely foreign. Still, going from a fairly tight group of folks you like to see everyday to working in your kitchen with no one but the cat to hear you rail against your upload speeds is a rough transition. I've been collating some of the materials I've found to ease us into remote work and keep everybody's spirits up in a rather challenging situation. I'm posting my list in case it's helpful to you, or your team.

I know it feels like it, but none of us are in this alone.
