NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Goldman Sachs has joined the list of Wall Street firms telling workers to stay home due to the surge in COVID cases.

The investment bank sent a memo Sunday asking employees who can work remotely to do so until January 18. Offices will remain open, with safety protocols in place.

Last week, JP-Morgan Chase gave employees the option to work from home for the first two weeks of January.

Citigroup also told workers who can do their jobs remotely to stay home.
