Apple closed several stores due to COVID-19 outbreaks and encourages customers now more than ever before, if they can’t make it into one of the few locations that still have a store open for business.
According to the reports of the last couple of weeks, around the US various stores have been closed due to the rising of COVID-19.
Closures are usually declared when 10 percent of the store’s employees test positive and a report from Bloomberg lists seven locations in the US and Canada that ceased operations within the last day or so.
Apple Stores records contain Dadeland and The Gardens Mall in Florida, Lenox Square in Atlanta, GA, Highland Village in Houston, TX, Summit Mall in Ohio, Pheasant Lane in New Hampshire, and Sainte-Catherine in Montreal, Canada.
Apple’s reply to alternate situations included renewing its masking policy and holding up office work plans for all of its employees. Apple has been taking a proactive approach to the changing conditions of omicron, which it refers as an “influenza pandemic”. The company announced last week that they would be calling backuncts who tested positive for illness at 10% higher rates than before and postponed plans on resuming office working until there is further notice from health officials.
9to5Mac points out another point for people to be conscious of, which is that Apple has started to recommend without charge a two-hour package in “most city areas”.
The promotion says it runs until noon on Christmas Eve, and while it’s handy for anyone on a last-minute gift task,
it could also help minimize the crowd in stores at the time of the shopping rush.
This is in addition to other options like store pickup/express/curb and next-day delivery for many items. For more detail visit us.
