(Bloomberg) -- Google is pushing back a plan to reopen its U.S. offices after coronavirus cases surged in several western and southern states.

All U.S. offices will remain closed until Sept. 7 at the earliest, according to a memo Google sent to employees. In May, Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai said the company would cautiously move some workers back in starting July 6.

Covid-19 is spreading fast again in the U.S., prompting some states to reverse earlier decisions to relax lockdowns. California, where Google is based, reported its second-biggest jump in new cases on Tuesday.

“While conditions do vary from state to state, we need to see that the U.S. outlook as a whole is stable before we move forward,” Chris Rackow, vice president of global security, wrote in the memo. “As the recent resurgence of cases demonstrates, Covid-19 is still very much alive in our communities.” Bloomberg News obtained a copy of the memo.

Alphabet Inc.’s Google was among the first major U.S. companies to send employees home back in March and has already told workers no one will be forced to return to the office for the remainder of the year.

“For all of you that are working from home, please continue to do so unless you are told otherwise by your manager,” Rackow wrote in the latest memo. “We don’t expect this guidance to change until Monday, September 7 (Labor Day) at the earliest.”

Google revealed the top five searches and questions people are asking about July 4 when they visit the company’s platform ahead of Independence Day.

“Independence Day is upon us, and that means searches for fireworks, sparklers and tons of delicious recipes are on the rise,” Google Trends noted Tuesday three days ahead of Independence Day. Along with the greeting, the company also showed the top questions people are asking regarding July 4.

“When is 4th of July” is the top question, according to Google Trends. The second-most asked question is “why do we celebrate 4th of July,” while “how many days till July 4th” rounds out the third-most asked question.

People also want to know what Independence Day is and whether the July 4 is a federal holiday.

The holiday might be a low-key affair for many in Washington, D.C.. Democratic D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told residents to spend July 4 at home, while also encouraging activists and demonstrators to gather amid the coronavirus outbreak.

City officials instituted lockdowns in early March to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which has reportedly killed nearly 127,000 people in the U.S. The virus originated in Wuhan, China, before spreading around the world, causing economic mayhem and death.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is planning a “Salute to America” on the White House South Lawn to celebrate Independence Day. The display will feature “music, military demonstrations, and flyovers to honor our Nation’s service members and veterans,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, according to The Washington Times.
