Apple Announces Plan to Reopen Retail Stores in the U.S.

Starting in states with lower COVID-19 infection rates.

Following its decision to close all retail locations outside of China back in March, Apple has announced plans to reopen select stores in the U.S. The company confirmed its plans with 9to5Mac, stating that it will begin reopening efforts in states less impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re excited to begin reopening stores in the U.S. next week, starting with some stores in Idaho, South Carolina, Alabama and Alaska. Our team is constantly monitoring local heath data and government guidance, and as soon as we can safely open our stores, we will,” Apple wrote in a statement.

The company will prioritize operations of its Genius Bar to provide much-needed support to those relying on technology to work and learn from home. Safety measures including temperature checks, face masks, social distancing and store occupancy limits will also be enacted.

In related news, Apple will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference virtually.
