Apple is gearing up to bring more of its employees back to its offices, with a new report from Bloomberg detailing what workers at the electronics giant will expect in this new, post-COVID world. 

According to the report, Apple will be requiring all employees to wear masks and will be doing temperature checks. The company will also be offering optional coronavirus tests, with the company also closing down “many break-room kitchens” and limiting elevators to two employees at a time at its Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. in order to fight the spread of the virus. 

Apple, Bloomberg notes, began having some workers return to the campus in May. 

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

Apple is one of a host of major tech companies to begin bringing employees back to the office. Facebook and Google previously announced plans to begin reopening their respective campuses around July 6, though both tech giants will be limiting capacity and allowing most employees to work from home through the end of the year. 

Microsoft and Amazon, meanwhile, will respectively be keeping most of their employees working remotely until at least October.
