We are currently still remote with no requirements to get back to office if you aren’t comfortable. No timeline when that will change. But there is no guarantee that you can stay permanently remote. Bet it’s the same for Deloitte too and you can’t possibly negotiate to permanent remote work.

Yup. Still virtual, gradually opening up and I doubt you can get a fully remote role. Prepare to travel at some point in the future once you are comfortable.
