Alphabet Inc.'s Google announced on Tuesday that it will reopen buildings in more cities at around 10% of their capacity from July 6th, and will scale to 30% in September, if conditions permit.
Google and its peer Facebook Inc allowed their employees to work from home in early March after the government put in place strict regulations to curb the corona virus.
Google said on Tuesday that it would grant each employee an allowance of $ 1,000 or equivalent in their country to pay for the necessary equipment and office furniture, as most of them are expected to spend most of the year off for the most part work from home.
There are a limited number of employees whose roles will be needed in the office again this year, and they would return on a limited, rotating basis, CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog post.
