Twitter sent its employees home in early March to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, but Mr. Dorsey had previously said he wanted Twitter’s work force to be more diversified around the world and that he welcomed remote work.

Twitter will reopen its offices no sooner than September, said Jennifer Christie, a vice president of human resources.

“If our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen,” Ms. Christie wrote in a blog post. “If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it’s safe to return.”
