Apple has told employees that a planned return to the office will be pushed from October to January 2022 because of the surge on Covid-19 cases worldwide, Bloomberg News reported.
Staff will be notified a month before the return date is confirmed, the report said, citing a company memo. Apple had originally planned to reopen its offices in September before delaying the move until a month later.
Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said earlier this year said the company would adopt a hybrid work plan in which employees would have to go to the office three days a week.
The tech giant also recently required employees and customers to wear masks in more than half of its 520 U.S. retail stores.
