SAN FRANCISCO: After reopening some locations, Apple is now planning to temporarily close some retail stores in four US states in view of growing cases of Covid-19, the media reported.
A total of about 11 stores will be shut down as a result of the new safety drive — six stores in Arizona, two in North Carolina, one in South Carolina, and another two in Florida, TechCrunch reported on Friday.
“Due to current COVID-19 conditions in some of the communities we serve, we are temporarily closing stores in these areas,” Apple was quoted as saying in a statement.
Earlier in a letter to customers, Apple’s Senior Vice president of Retail and People, Deirdre O’Brien, explained the company’s approach to reopening its stores.
