Stores in Florida, Mississippi, Texas and Utah were closed today. Apple has 271 retail stores in the United States.
"Due to the current epidemic situation in some of the communities we serve, we have temporarily closed stores in these areas," an apple spokesman said in a statement. We will pay close attention to this situation and take prudent action, and look forward to the return of our team and customers as soon as possible. "
Apple was one of the first companies to close global retail stores in response to the new crown epidemic. Apple has taken a number of safety measures in the reopened stores, including mandatory masks, temperature detection, roadside pickup and reservation services in some areas.
