““Like many others, after remote working for the past year, we will resume limited operations at our Washington, DC headquarters with a phased return of staff to our buildings beginning June 1st, June one. This easing of work from home status reflects the improving health and safety conditions related to Covid-19 in the DC metropolitan area, and by working virtually over this past year, as I think you know, the fund has been able to maintain full service to our member countries during the pandemic indeed, in many ways, unprecedented service in the past year in the midst of the pandemic. So, June 1st, phased return of staff to the buildings here in Washington. That said, many aspects of our virtual mode of operation will continue even as we move gradually to implement our headquarters resumption plans in the months ahead. And as, of course, as conditions allow,”
