I don't think Apple has very much to worried about. When and if it happens, they'll have an Office clone out using Keynote and whatever else they come up with which'll be Office compatible. As well, OpenOffice 1.1, 1.X, 2.0, or whatever they have out at the time will have been ported over to OS X (as Aqua application).

Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
