Google, Facebook Extend Work From Home Policies Until 2021 (

Most Google and Facebook employees likely will not be going back to the office full time until 2021.

The two companies have told employees to settle into home-office routines through the end of the year amid the COVID-19 crisis. Both Google and Facebook this week said they will let most employees work from home through the end of 2020, while they also set timelines for gradually reopening corporate offices.

– Google will begin a phased reopening of offices in June, but with just 10%-15% of staffers allowed to be in any one location at the outset
– Facebook plans to start opening most of its offices on July 6 while also saying employees who can work remotely will have that option through the end of the year.
