Social media giant Twitter has once again decided to close its offices in New York and San Francisco due to the sudden surge of COVID-19 cases in those areas, particularly on the Delta Variant.
It can be recalled that Twitter opened its offices in New York and San Francisco last July 12 and allowed workers to return voluntarily.
However, those who wish to go back to work were required to get vaccinated first.
But due to the recent surge of the Delta Variant, Twitter has decided to close those offices again.
“After careful consideration of the CDC’s updated guidelines, and in light of current conditions, Twitter has decided to close our opened offices in New York and San Francisco as well as pause future office reopenings, effective immediately,” a Twitter spokesperson said.
Based on the latest record from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention an estimated 63% of U.S. counties currently have a “high” or “substantial” spread of the virus.
Moreover, aside from Twitter, the tech giant, Apple has also pushed its return-to-office date back a month to October at the earliest.
