"We’re giving employees who welcome the chance to come into the office the option to do that wherever we safely can, while allowing those who aren’t ready to keep working from home," the company's spokesperson said in a statement.

Alphabet Inc's Google said on Wednesday it is giving employees in the Bay Area the option to return to office where possible, as Covid-19 cases ease in the United States.

The company will also be restoring and increasing the availability of amenities at its offices such as fitness centers, massage services and cafes.

Google said working from office remains voluntary and about 30% of its employees in the Bay Area worked onsite last week.
