Apple this week has started to let employees know at its retail stores in the US that there are plans to reopen some of the stores around the country which have been closed since the start of the coronavirus earlier this year. A few months afterwards, some stores opened up again, only to have to close again due to riots. Some stores also opened up in May, but due to a spike in the outbreaks, they had to close again in June and July.

There still are some Apple Stores in the US which have just remained open and in those locations, the appropriate safety measures and guidelines have been adhered to, such as masks, social distancing and hand sanitisers.

Apple hasn’t said when more stores in the US will be opening again, but some employees have been told to expect stores to repoen sometime this week.

Here in the UK, all 38 Apple Stores are open.
