Google is letting its staff take a day-off on May 22 to cope with work-from-home-related burnout.

The announcement was made by Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai, as the company readies to let most of its staff work remotely until the end of this year.

The tech giant added that it would begin reopening more offices globally as early as June.

It comes as Facebook announced a similar work plan on Friday, with work-from-home planned for most workers until the end of 2020.

The coronavirus, which has infected more than 3.9 million people globally so far, has forced most firms to change the way they do business.
