Density Of Business Operations And Covid 19

Recently, meat packaging plants have been in the news for Covid 19 related shutdowns due to their working conditions and densely packed setups.  What other industries have very densely packed working conditions?  Obviously, the general office buildings in CBDs and hence most of them have instituted work from home strategies.  Frankly, I have been a bit surprised that most factories are actually humming.  Most of the chemical operations have not been forced to shut down.  On the front of construction, working outdoors on a civil project is likely fine.  But working on a project in NYC doing interior installation is likely difficult as they tend to be tightly crammed.  Are there industries or business that are more or less dense than people may perceive them to be?

As a side note: I feel high-density cities with skyscrapers will have an additional challenge which is transporting people in elevators.

Cubes are coming back, which means more sqft per employee, but more will work from home, which means less sqft needed ???? The suburban office parks will probably do OK because often there is no elevator and workers drive alone in their cars.
