NBCUniversal is delaying its return to office and implementing a vaccine requirement amid growing concerns around coronavirus.

Employees had been slated to return to the office on a widespread basis after Labor Day in September 2021, but that is being pushed to Oct. 18, 2021, at the earliest.

The company will require all U.S. employees working in its office to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

NBCUniversal and its banner brand, NBC, is headquartered at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. This facility houses significant studio, newsroom and office operations.

Other key facilities include CNBC’s building in New Jersey, NBC Sports headquarters in Connecticut as well as operations in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles.

The company also has invested heavily in building facilities in cities where it owns and operates the local NBC and Telemundo affiliates. These facilities typically combine operations of the local stations and many also include a regional bureau or support operations for the network.

In addition to NBC, the company also owns a portfolio of cable networks including Bravo and USA. Other divisions include TV and film production and distribution, streaming and digital operations and Universal Parks & Resorts.

Although these divisions were not specifically named, employees there would presumably be subject to the requirement.

NBCUniversal is owned by Comcast.
