BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — With the Omicron variant of COVID-19 spreading fast, Boston Mayor Michelle Wu announced that some city employees will temporarily shift to remote work to slow its progression.

In an email sent to city employees on Saturday, Wu said that those who can perform their essential duties from home will do so starting on Tuesday and continue until at least January 18. Other employees were said to be on a scheduled rotation in order to limit the amount of people in a building at once.

The shift to remote work came as an opposite approach to the state's decision on students returning to in-person learning, as Wu said keeping city schools open was a top priority along with continuing to provide essential services to residents.
