(Reuters) - Canada's Toronto-Dominion Bank is directing staff who are able to do so, to work from home until further notice, according to a memo on Friday, as concerns over the Omicron coronavirus variant mount globally.

The new directive would also apply to all staffers participating in the bank's voluntary return to office program, the memo from Kenn Lalonde, senior executive vice president of human resources, said.
