Two Bay Area tech giants are preparing to reopen their offices for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Facebook confirmed Friday it will start bringing employees back to the Menlo Park headquarters at 10% capacity beginning May 10. The Fremont offices are scheduled to open May 17, Sunnyvale on May 24 and San Francisco on June 7.
Uber told the San Francisco Chronicle on Friday that it will open its new S.F. headquarters in Mission Bay on Monday at 20% capacity.
This news comes as COVID infection rates are declining across the Bay Area and public health departments are easing restrictions. Both Santa Clara and San Francisco counties are in the orange tier in California’s reopening plan and nonessential offices are allowed to reopen with safety measures in place, though remote work is encourage. San Francisco County limits capacity for offices to 25%.
