“If regional COVID-19 outbreaks continue popping up in the communities Apple serves, we can expect this pattern of re-opening and re-closing to continue for a considerable amount of time,” author Michael Steeber noted.
COVID-19 concerns and Apple retail
The company began re-opening its retail stores in the US in late May.
However, as the health situation in the country has worsened, the Cupertino tech giant had to re-close many of its retail stores in the United States. Some of the Apple retail stores that temporarily closed doors to customers due to COVID-19 concerns include locations in California, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho and other states, like Florida, Houston and others.
