International Olympic Committee (IOC) staff will resume work at the Olympic House in Lausanne, Switzerland next Monday, an IOC spokesperson told Xinhua on Wednesday.
"IOC staff will begin returning to work at Olympic House on June 8 progressively and in accordance with guidelines from the Swiss health authorities," a spokesperson responded when asked if their Lausanne-based staff will continue to work at home.
The IOC staff started working remotely on March 16 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The organization later extended the period to June 8 following formal advice of health authorities.
