Goldman Sachs Group Inc., one of Wall Street’s fiercest champions of returning its staff to offices, is asking U.S. employees to work from home if they can until Jan. 18 as Covid-19 surges nationwide.

Goldman’s reversal comes after most of its major peers, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc., adopted a more cautious stance as the omicron variant spreads rapidly across the U.S., encouraging staff to resume work in the new year from their homes.
