Covid-19: Google delays return to office until January 2022


Google has postponed the mandatory return of its employees to the office until January 2022 due to the spread of the Delta variant of Covid-19.

“I am delighted that many of our offices have already reopened,” Sundar Pichai, the boss of the tech giant, said in a statement, “but in many places around the world the pandemic continues to cause uncertainty.”

The worldwide return to the company’s campuses, on a voluntary basis, has therefore been postponed to January 10, 2022, “to give more flexibility and choice” to employees. “You will have 30 days’ notice before having to come back to the office,” said the manager.

Its California neighbors Facebook and Apple, as well as Amazon, have made similar announcements recently. They were counting on a return to the fall thanks to vaccination campaigns, but revised their plans in the face of the new wave of Covid-19 contamination.
