    FACEBOOK has joined Google in saying it will allow employees to work from home until the middle of next year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

    “Based on guidance from health and government experts, as well as decisions drawn from our internal discussions about these matters, we are allowing employees to continue voluntarily working from home until July 2021,” a spokeswoman told the Reuters news agency.

    Facebook also said it will provide employees with an additional $1,000 to spend on “home office needs.”

    Late last month Google also extended its coronavirus remote work provision, saying staff would be able to continue working from home until the end of June 2021.

    ... In late July, Apple said staff won’t return to offices until at least early 2021 — cautioning that any return to physical offices would depend on whether an effective vaccine and/or successful therapeutics are available. So the iPhone maker looks prepared for a home-working coronavirus long haul.
