Amid coronavirus outbreak, Facebook will be allowing almost all of its employees to continue the work from home till the end of 2020, a report suggested.

The social media giant is also not expecting to open most of its offices before July 6, the Verge reported. Facebook has stated that the decision is based on various factors like information from the public health agencies as well as government guidance.

Facebook employees have been working from home since March when the coronavirus knocked on the doors of several countries. The socio-giant has also clarified that it would continue to pay hourly employees who may not be able to work because of reduced staffing, office closures, or if they're unwell.

Last month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had announced that the company is cancelling its physical events with more than 50 people through June 2021.
