Aetna is planning on having most of its employees work from home through at least the start of 2021, according to the Hartford Courant

Karen Lynch, president of Aetna and executive vice president of its parent company CVS Health, told the publication the decision was based on current health indicators. The remote work extension will apply to most of its workers, 5,300 of whom are in Connecticut.

Employees who return to the office will undergo temperature screenings, wellness self-checks, social distancing and be required to wear face coverings.
