A month after acquiring Tiffany & Co., French luxury-goods giant LVMH told employees at the U.S. jeweller to return to the office two days a week beginning March 1, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

LVMH, which closed the US$15.8-billion acquisition of Tiffany on Jan. 7, had appointed the son of company founder Bernard Arnault in a new leadership team at the U.S. jeweller.

Both LVMH and Tiffany did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The WSJ report, which cites people familiar with the situation, comes as COVID-19 cases in the United States have started to ease, but still remain much higher than pre-October levels.
