(Reuters) – Oreo cookies maker Mondelez International has postponed the planned re-opening of its global headquarters in Chicago as the Omicron COVID-19 variant fuels “concern and uncertainty”, a spokeswoman for the company said.

The company, which also makes Ritz crackers and Trident chewing gum, had earlier planned to fully re-open its headquarters in Fulton Market, Chicago, on Jan. 10.

However, “with COVID-19 transmission rates once again rising, and the Omicron variant adding additional concern and uncertainty, we have postponed the planned reopening of our Fulton Market location,” spokesperson Tracey Noe said in an email.
