Apple to Start Reopening U.S. Stores Next Week

Apple will begin reopening its retail stores in the United States next week, reports CNBC, starting with locations in Idaho, South Carolina, Alabama, and Alaska.

Apple plans to limit the number of customers in the store at a time, and temperature checks will be performed at the door. Apple also has a number of other measures in place to keep customers and employees safe, as we outlined this morning.

"We're excited to begin reopening stores in the US next week, starting with some stores in Idaho, South Carolina, Alabama and Alaska. Our team is constantly monitoring local heath data and government guidance, and as soon as we can safely open our stores, we will."

"Our new social distance protocol allows for a limited number of visitors in the store at one time so there may be a delay for walk-in customers. We recommend, where possible, customers buy online for contactless delivery or in-store pick up."

Reopened Apple Stores will operate on reduced hours and will primarily focus on repairs, with Apple encouraging customers to purchase online where possible.

Most stores are not listing hours at this time with the exception of Apple Boise Towne Square, which reopens Monday at 11:00 a.m.

During last week's earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Apple planned to start reopening some stores in the United States in May. Store reopenings are done on a city by city, county by county basis, with Apple taking into account local data and guidelines.

Apple has already reopened stores in South Korea, Austria, and Australia, with plans to also reopen stores in Germany next week.

Good thing this pandemic is behind us..
Oh wait.


Perfect example of distorting data with charts. One, deaths and cases can never go down. What you need to plot is new deaths and new cases.

Second, diseases spread exponentially. Therefore, the Y-axis needs to be a logarithmic scale. In fact, the images show you specifically chose the wrong scale, since a log scale is available.

The combination of those two presentation mistakes serves to visually minimize any trends. If you properly present the data, it would be obvious that COVID is indeed slowing down.

Stay safe everyone. Also, temp checks don't do much. A lot of people are asymptomatic. And no, this isn't a flu, 19 doesn't mean it's the 19th version of corona, and it's certainly not a hoax.

Anyone who dies who has covid like symptoms can be included in the death count...Weakness is a symptom of covid. IDK anyone who dies without weakness. Hospitals get extra money for listing covid as cause of intake...they have a financial incentive to pump the numbers. I'm not sayings it's not a real thing to be concerned about, I'm just saying the numbers presented here are likely inflated.
Hospitals are running out of cash and have closed. Even my local hospital system is losing $120m a month. They will begin to furlough workers soon. Please tell me more about this extra money.


signed in for the first time in a long time to agree with you. Fauci’s plandemic is just about over , we can only hope.

hey if you wanna be a scaredy cat and think wearing a blankie on your nose is gonna keep you safe, be my guest. But I won’t be stepping foot in any store that requires me to do so!
Why is it impossible for Americans to do anything for the greater good? How ****ing hard is it to wear a face mask? Get ahold of yourself.
