Twitter is re-closing its New York and San Francisco offices shortly after they reopened, the company said Wednesday.

The announcement comes amid a spike in COVID-19 cases due in large part to soaring Delta variant cases and rampant anti-vaccination sentiment.

Many companies are slowing down their reopenings due to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s updated guidelines that recommend masks indoors even for people who’ve received one of the vaccinations.

“After careful consideration of the CDC’s updated guidelines, and in light of current conditions, Twitter has made the decision to close our opened offices in New York and San Francisco as well as pause future reopenings, effective immediately,” Twitter said, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.

The social media company had just reopened the offices two weeks ago, the Chronicle said.

Twitter was one of many tech companies to announce it was allowing workers to work remotely indefinitely.

Google announced Wednesday it was pushing back its reopening until at least October and requiring employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
