SAN FRANCISCO – Facebook said its Silicon Valley offices will begin reopening to workers in May after a yearlong pandemic shutdown, but without perks such as free food and commuter shuttles.
The Menlo Park headquarters and other locations in the region will start with 10 percent of “maximum seated capacity,” the social media giant said.
Facebook and other Silicon Valley firms shifted to remote work early in the pandemic, relying on the internet tools they create to get jobs done.
The rollout of vaccines and improving health conditions were cited as reasons it is preparing to gradually welcome employees back to abandoned campuses.
Facebook’s plan is to open select offices in the Silicon Valley area on a rolling basis, limiting seating capacity to no more than 10 percent as a start.
