Despite all the hygiene measures imposed worldwide, the progress of COVID-19 has not stopped. This means that brands have to be adapted to the circumstances of each location in the same way so as not to harm a person’s health.

Similarly, Apple announced on Wednesday that it will close more than two dozen stores in seven U.S. states, including California (headquartered in California), as of Thursday.

This decision increases to 77, and the number of sites that are not currently acting as coronavirus cases continues to grow.

The states that will close shops are:

  • Alabama
  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Louisiana
  • Nevada
  • Oklahoma
  • They had previously closed stores in Florida, Mississippi, Texas, and Utah.

The reason for this solution is that Apple analyzed the health situation in each city and evaluated data from the communities.

In the cities where it remains open, it also asks its employees and customers to use masks and, according to the company, to carry out frequent temperature checks and cleaning using the digital medium. Invest.

Salary payments to employees will continue for the duration of the closure.
