Amazon Extends Remote Working Policy Again

Amazon has announced it will be extending its remote working policy until June of 2021 due to the ongoing surge in COVID-19 cases across the country.

“The health and safety of our employees is our top priority, and it will be some time before things return to normal,” the company said in a blog post. “Accordingly, work that can effectively be done from home can continue to be done from home through June 30, 2021.”

Prior to the extension, Amazon had planned on allowing employees to work remotely until the beginning of October. In July, it pushed it back to early January.
