Apple Recloses 30 More Retail Outlets After A Spike In COVID-19 Cases

Apple has reclosed 30 more retail outlets in the US recently as their reclosure tally reaches 77 across the US. The Cupertino-based smartphone manufacturer said that the decision has been taken in the wake of rapidly rising cases of Covid-19 in various regions around the country.

Apple stores in California, Alabama, Idaho, Georgia, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Nevada were closed on Thursday while the stores in Mississippi, Florida, Utah, and Texas were closed a day earlier. Overall, there are 271 Apple stores across the US.

The company’s shares dropped as soon as they announced the closure of their retail outlets and the traded in negative on Wednesday.

Usually, the Apple stores are located in the malls and shopping centers that receive huge traffic every day. Now that they have been reclosed in a significant number, it’s a negative indicator when it comes to how smoothly the smartphone manufacturer manages to get its retail operations restarted across the United States during the ongoing coronavirus situation.

In a recent statement, a spokesman from apple said: “Due to current COVID-19 conditions in some of the communities we serve, we are temporarily closing stores in these areas. We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible.”

With the new reclosures, Apple’s last two open outlets in Florida have also been closed down. This also includes quite a few Apple stores around Los Angeles as well.

Apple remains among the very few companies who took the lead in shutting down their stores all over the world due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even though they were reopening stores to provide curbside service across the United States with proper safety measures taken including temperature checks and masks, the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases forced them to close down many of their outlets in the hard-hit states.
