Following the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in states where it operates, USAA has postponed the date for workers to return to its offices until at least the beginning of next year, the San Antonio Express-News reported.
The San Antonio financial services company informed employees last week that the bulk of its 35,000-person workforce will work from home through Dec. 31, instead of the originally scheduled Sept. 1.
“Due to rising cases of COVID-19 in some areas where we have office locations and to help us proactively address potential waves of virus spread expected in the fall, we are extending our work from home guidelines through Dec. 31,” USAA said in an e-mailed statement Monday.
USAA employs 19,000 people in San Antonio. The number of coronavirus cases topped 10,000 in Bexar County as of Sunday. The company also has offices in Florida and Arizona, both of which have seen spikes.
