Apple to shut some US stores again due to rising COVID-19 cases - Science & Tech
Apple Inc said on Friday it is temporarily shutting some stores again in Florida, Arizona, South Carolina, and North Carolina in the United States, as novel coronavirus cases continue to rise in the country.
Shares of the company, which said the closure would affect 11 stores in these states, were down 0.5 percent.
However, cases in the United States have been steadily rising, with over 2.2 million people infected and at least 118,396 people dead.
"These are not decisions we rush into — and a store opening in no way means that we won't take the preventative step of closing it again should local conditions warrant," O'Brien had said.
