Apple delays office return - Bloomberg News

Apple is delaying its return to corporate offices to January at the earliest due to surging cases and new variants.

That's according to a report on Friday (August 20) from Bloomberg News, citing a memo.

The report added that the iPhone maker told staff it would confirm the re-opening timeline one month before employees are required to return to the office.

Apple did not respond to a Reuters request for comment outside regular business hours.

Several companies across the U.S. have changed their plans on vaccinations, masking and return to office due to the resurgence of cases.

The memo, reportedly sent to staff on Thursday, also said the company does not currently expect to shutter its offices or retail stores.

But it urged employees to get vaccinated.
