Apple Delays Office Reopening Until At Least October

As COVID-19 cases are once again surging, many organizations are struggling with whether to continue with return-to-office plans. One major company has decided to hit pause on reopening. Apple will delay its reopening until at least October, according to Bloomberg. 

Apple, headquartered in Cupertino, California, is one of the first major companies to respond to the Delta variant with a delay on returning to its office. Apple CEO Tim Cook had previously told employees they could begin returning to the office in early September. But with coronavirus cases on the rise due to the highly contagious Delta variant, Apple has postponed those plans. 

The company says it will give employees at least one month's notice before requiring them to return to the office. And then employees will be required to work in the office Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, with Wednesday and Friday being optional. As well, employees will have two weeks of remote work days per year.
