Facebook will reportedly allow most of its employees to work from home until the end of this year and plans to reopen most of its offices on July 6.

CNBC, citing a Facebook spokeswoman, said CEO Mark Zuckerberg is expected to make the announcement on Thursday.

Like most companies, Facebook employees have been working from home to slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The move gives a glimpse into how one of the world’s largest tech companies plan to reopen in the coming months.

In April, Zuckerberg said that the social network’s employees will likely be among the last back to the office when society reopens, noting that the return to work will have to done in a “staggered way.” At the time, he said that most of the employees will work through home through at least the end of May. Employees who can’t work remotely such as content reviewers who work on counter-terrorism or suicide and self-harm prevention and certain engineers may be able to return sooner to the office, he said.

Facebook hasn’t determined which employees will be able to come back into its offices once it reopens, CNBC reported.

As of March 31, Facebook had 48,268 workers throughout the world. 

Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
