9.4.2021 | Google informed employees to return to office in May.
Google informed employees on 1st of April that it is planning to allow some employees back into offices in the next month. New York Times reported an email that said “it is likely we’ll begin to welcome Googlers back to some of our U.S. offices on a voluntary basis.”
The company told The Verge that specifics of reopening will depend on “specific criteria that include increases in vaccine availability and downward trends in COVID-19 cases.” However, it is not requiring employees to get vaccinated.
Google’s return strategy is still timed for September, with obvious hopes that by then widespread vaccinations will make it safe to have more people in the same space.
