Apple has announced that it will delay its return to the office following the devastating California wildfires.
The company had planned to resume work this week, but said in a statement that it needs “additional time to ensure our employees are safe.“
Apple has been headquartered in Cupertino, California since 1977. The company’s campus was spared from the fire, but many of its employees were affected by the disaster.
In total, over 190,000 acres have been burned in California and at least 44 people have been killed. More than 8,000 homes and businesses have been destroyed.
Apple is just one of many companies that have had to delay their return to work because of the fires. Facebook, Google, and Netflix are among the others.
These companies have all pledged to donate money to help the victims of the fires. Apple has said that it will donate $1 million to relief efforts.
It is unclear when these companies will be able to resume normal operations. The fires are still burning and conditions are changing rapidly.
