Google extends working from home policy to July 2021”

Google will allow most employees to work from home until July 2021 in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the tech giant said today.

Other tech firms, such as Apple, moved their developer conferences to a virtual format to adhere to lockdown rules and social distancing measures. It marks a six-month extension of Google's previous plan to keep most of its offices closed through the rest of this year.

Pichai's decision was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

In its own blog post about employees working from home, Twitter said: "When we do decide to open offices, it also won't be a snap back to the way it was before".

Google had originally planned to allow a significant number of employees to begin returning to its Mountain View, California, headquarters and other offices during the summer.

Google employees won't be returning to campus any time soon as Google has made a decision to keep everyone working from home for at least another year. Facebook has also said that it expects at least half of its staff to work from home for the next five to 10 years. All of its United States offices remain closed and the company had previously told staff to return by January. Initially, the company directed its employees to work from home until April, before extending it to July and then until the end of 2020.

Google has chose to take a big step to further ensure the health and safety of its employees with a major announcement.
