Apple Inc., which had delayed calling remote-working employees back to the office due to the risk of COVID-19 infection, now plans to welcome them back by April 11, according to a memo by Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook.
After April 11, employees will work in the office twice a week. By May 23, the memo added, in-office work will increase to three days.
Apple’s pandemic restriction have been moderately eased. It’s no longer necessary for vaccinated customers and staff to wear masks in the retail stores.
Apple is taking measure similar to those of other leading technology companies mandating return as case counts fall. Among them are Alphabet’s (GOOGL.O) Google and Twitter.
