Google offices to mandate vaccines

Google announced Wednesday it would require all in-office workers and visitors to be vaccinated and that employees could continue working from home through Oct. 18.

Why it matters: It's another sign that the Delta variant's spread is upending corporate plans for a quick and steady resumption of in-office work.

The big picture: Google was one of the first big U.S. companies to send its workers home in March 2020.

  • This March it set Sept. 1 as a back-to-the-office deadline, but it has been steadily revising plans as the virus situation has evolved.

Details: Google CEO Sundar Pichai said the vaccine mandate "will vary according to local conditions and regulations, and will not apply until vaccines are widely available in your area," per a memo to employees.

  • He said there will be "an exceptions process for those who cannot be vaccinated for medical or other protected reasons."
