Apple closing 14 more retail locations in Florida due to COVID-19 spike
Apple is reclosing 14 of its Florida retail locations on Friday, June 26 due to a recent resurgence of COVID-19 in the state.
The Cupertino tech giant had begun reopening select U.S. retail locations in May with new social distancing and hygiene measures. Apple shuttered all of its U.S. locations due to coronavirus in March.
Apple's shuttering of the Florida locations comes on the heels of similar closures in Texas on Wednesday. The week before, Apple re-closed two locations in Florida, as well as nine more in South Carolina, North Carolina and Arizona.
"Due to current Covid-19 conditions in some of the communities we serve, we are temporarily closing stores in these areas. We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible," Apple said in a previous statement about the closures.
