Google is backtracking on its plans to reopen its US offices after coronavirus cases across the country have surged exponentially over the past couple of weeks, Bloomberg has learned.
In an internal memo sent to employees, the company said its offices will remain closed at least until September 7.
Earlier in May, CEO Sundar Pichai announced the Big G hopes to cautiously move some workers back in starting July 6.
Google was one of many tech giants — including Microsoft, Apple, and Twitter — that asked employees to work from home in March, when there were slightly more than 1,000 registered coronavirus cases in the US.
At the time, the company said it wouldn’t force employees to return to the office for the remainder of the year.
Since then, the number has jumped to over 2.7 million.
