COVID’s resurgence ends Twitter Bay Area Offices

The Mountain View digital-advertising firm started bringing workers back to offices July 12, and Pichai encouraged those who feel safe coming to offices to continue doing so. Twitter’s reversal comes as Google this week also delayed full re-opening by extending its remote-work option for employees through October 18 instead of September 1. Company CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog post, “Many Googlers are seeing spikes in their communities caused by the Delta variant and are concerned about returning to the office.” Apple has also delayed re-opening by a month until at least October, Bloomberg reported last week.

An alarming increase in hospitalizations and case rates across California pushed state health authorities on Wednesday to call for everyone to resume wearing masks indoors and for unvaccinated people to get immunized. The CDC this week also reversed course amid the Delta variant’s rise, and recommended that even vaccinated people wear masks indoors in areas of “substantial or high transmission.” State public health officer Dr. Tomás J. Aragón said Wednesday that more than 90% of California’s population is in such areas. Twitter had just opened the offices two weeks ago, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

According to CDC data, San Francisco County has “high” transmission, along with Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano counties. Santa Clara, San Mateo and Marin counties have “substantial” transmission, according to the CDC. “We’re continuing to closely monitor local conditions and make necessary changes that prioritize the health and safety of our Tweeps,” a company spokesperson said in an emailed statement.
