Latest: Amazon postpones return to office date

Other companies that have postponed reopening plans include Microsoft, Google, Twitter and Lyft. ___

Instead, the company said Thursday that unvaccinated employees will be required to wear masks in the office. The surge of the delta variant of the coronavirus has upended many companies’ plans to bring office workers back this fall, a drive already complicated by efforts to accommodate widespread employee preference for flexible remote work policies, and debates over how to handle vaccine and masking policies.
