Apple will reopen more than 25 stores across the U.S. and 12 stores in Canada this week, reports Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

The decision follows a published letter on Sunday from the company's senior VP of retail, Deirdre O'Brien, detailing the safety measures that Apple is taking as it gradually re-opens stores across the globe. These include temperature checks conducted at the door, limited occupancy, and a renewed emphasis on one-to-one service. As an alternative to entering some physical stores, customers can also expect to see curb-side pickup and drop off options.

Apple has already opened over 100 stores globally, with many of those stores located in China, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Australia as nationwide lockdowns ease.

Apple's store list includes the following openings for this week:

  • California: Roseville, Arden Fair (Sacramento), Higuera Street (San Luis Obispo)

Everything should reopen. If people are worried. then they can choose to stay home. People who wants to go SHOULD have the choice to go. Even if they take the risk.
But the decision isn't about your own personal risk, its about other people. Others may have to be out and about for necessities, but the majority of Americans should really just stay home until the spread slows to where the growth factor is trending below 1.0.
If you open everything back up at once you are putting everyone back to how things were when this started, except worse because you'll have a flood of people who haven't been able to buy things since the shutdown began. A multi-phased, gradual and Cautious reopening is the most sensible way to get an economy going again, safely.

You really don't understand why you should stay at home and wear masks when you leave your home, do you?

The mask is not to protect you from contracting the disease. It's to protect others from YOU spreading the disease, should you have it and not know about it.

And the reason why you should stay at home is to slow down the spread and make sure that your completely insufficient and inadequate health care system does not completely collapse.

You're showing responsibility when you stay at home - because that is what keeps your community safe.

By not wearing a mask and not keeping your distance you're simply demonstrating that you are a completely irresponsible person. Full stop and end of discussion.

This isn't about your understanding of freedom (which requires a thorough update). This is about being a responsible member and keeping others safe.

It should. In phases. In past epidemics, quarantining the sick was shown to be effective. Current statistics show a few things , that 65% of new covid cases come from people who are staying at home following the rules. 18% of those were older, over 50 yrs old .

It’s also been show that you’re 18 times more likely to catch covid indoors vs outdoors.

From this , could conclude that letting healthy people return to work, but quarantining the sick, eldery, and those with immunity disorders should stay home in phase one.

The quarantine is about slowing down exposure to the disease, not preventing it from ever happening. It has to happen at some point to develop a resistance to it.

Yes, if you go outside you might get hit by a car, that doesn’t mean you never go outside. Some people use Covid the same way parents might use the boogeyman myth to get their kids to behave the way they want them too.


In addition , keeping people from going to work causes business to fail, people to go broke , depression, and other
problem. Suicide and starvation , lack of medical care, or becoming homeless can also cause deaths mental illness. And hurt society on a large scale. ie “ cure might be worse than the disease.”
