According to multiple reports, the development was shared with Apple employees in an email from CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday. Apple confirmed the details of the email to CNN Business.
The move by the Silicon Valley giant comes amid a growing number of Covid-19 cases and concerns about the spread of the Omicron variant. Earlier this week, Apple restored the right to restrict masks at all of its stores in the US, and reportedly closed some of them as well due to a spike in product numbers.
Several companies including Google, Lyft, Uber and Amazon have also pushed back their reopening dates several times as uncertainty about the pandemic continues.
Early in the pandemic, several companies including Google and Facebook gave their employees $1,000 bonuses to help with the cost of working from home.
