In the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Amazon is extending its work from home policy until Jan. 8, 2021, Reuters reported Wednesday

The move makes for a three-month extension of the online retail giant's work from home policy, which was previously slated to end in October of this year.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
