Apple partially closes brand stores in New York

With the rise in COVID-19 infections in the United States and Canada, Apple has begun to close some brand showrooms in these countries again. This week, a decision was made to partially close company showrooms in and around New York.

Apple has decided this week to partially close twelve stores in New York alone and four more in Garden City, Huntington Station, Lake Grove and Manhasset. Most of them still accept online orders or previously repaired equipment, but it is no longer possible to make direct purchases. Over the past two weeks, Apple has also closed fully selected showrooms in Miami, Palm Beach, Atlanta, Houston, Akron, Nashua, Annapolis, Ottawa and Montreal, and reintroduced the obligation to wear masks in its stores (which was lifted just over a month ago) and restrictions on the number of people who can stay in the room at the same time.

In March last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple closed almost all of its brand stores at the same time. However, it seems that this time the company will try to avoid such actions by closing only selected stores. According to information obtained last week by Bloomberg, the current plan is to close all stores where at least 10% of employees will test positive for COVID-19. It is not known, however, whether the partial closure of salons in and around New York means that all of them have exceeded the aforementioned level of infection, or whether it is just a preventive measure.
