Twitter has announced it will immediately close its offices in San Francisco and New York as Covid cases increase across the country.

The announcement Wednesday comes just two weeks after the social media company reopened its offices in both cities.

“After careful consideration of the CDC’s updated guidelines and in light of current conditions, Twitter has decided to close our open offices in New York and San Francisco, as well as pause future office reopens, which take effect immediately,” a Twitter spokesman said in statement on wednesday.

The company added that they continue to closely monitor local conditions and make the necessary changes that “give priority to the health and safety of our Tweeps”.

Twitter is the latest Bay Area company to either delay their reopening or close its offices due to the delta variant.

Earlier on Wednesday, Google announced it would delay the return of the office until October. A month later than the original date in September.
