The technology giant closed eight locations temporarily due to an increase in COVID-19 cases among the public and among its employees, and the news agency said that Apple usually closes a retail store if about 10% of its employees are confirmed to be infected with COVID-19, according to a technical engadged report.
The following locations are closed since Tuesday: • Dadland in Miami • Gardens Mall in Palm Beach • Lenox Square in Atlanta • Cumberland Mall in Atlanta • Highland Village in Houston • Summit Mall in Ohio • Cyclist Lane in New Hampshire • Saint Catherine in Montreal as well. The company closed stores in Hawaii, Maryland, Ohio, Ottawa (Canada) and Texas earlier this month, although it only lasted a few days, and yet one retail location in Miami remains closed.
“We regularly monitor conditions, will adjust our health procedures to support the well-being of customers and employees, and remain committed to a comprehensive approach for our teams that combines regular testing with daily health checks, employee and client concealment, deep cleaning, and paid sick leave,” the company told Bloomberg in a statement.
Perhaps in an effort to persuade people to shop online instead, Apple is offering customers “free two-hour express mail delivery on in-stock items. Bank transfer, but as long as product is eligible and available – it’s the holidays and companies are still struggling with shortages of ingredients, so availability will likely be limited, and buyers can get their orders free if they order before 12pm on December 24.
And Apple took other steps earlier this month after the number of cases rose and the Omicron variant emerged. It chose to postpone plans to return to the office that were due to begin in February, and it reinstated mask requirements in all of its US stores.
