Facebook has told its US staff to carry on wearing facemasks in the office even if they’ve been fully jabbed against Covid-19. The firm says the measure is in response to rising cases.
The policy will come into effect next Tuesday. It applies to all the company’s offices in the US. Last week, Facebook said that employees must be vaccinated before returning to the office.
Maybe Mark Zuckerberg will grow a neat square moustache. We’ll never know, as presumably he’ll never be seen without a facemask again.
Facebook plans to fully reopen its offices in October and expects staff to work from home up to half the time they are working. Amazon and Google have also asked staff in certain offices to continue to wear a face covering.
Various polls in the UK seem to show that as many as two thirds of Britons plan to continue wearing facemasks in some settings. A YouGov poll published yesterday, indicated that the majority of businesses expect staff to work from home as often as three days a week.
If there was/is an agenda to transform human behaviour and lived human experience, it’s certainly working a treat.
