.... Why can't they just close the building and enforce telework like most of the private firms are doing?
If I answer that question I might get banned for making highly offensive comments. Aside from that theory, your guess is as good as mine. It's idiotic because most of the attorneys in her office WILL telecommute, which means they really don't need much, if any, support staff in the office.
But they brag about never closing if it can be avoided.
