Apple Recloses 11 Stores in Southern California, Maryland, Ohio, and Tennessee

Apple is reclosing 11 additional retail stores in the U.S. because of local increases in coronavirus infections. As reported by 9to5Mac, the stores are located in California, Maryland, Ohio, and Tennessee, and add to the two stores that temporarily closed earlier this week, bringing the total Apple retail store reclosures in the country to 91.

The stores in California include Brea Mall (Brea), South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa), Irvine Spectrum Center (Irvine), Mission Viejo (Mission Viejo), Fashion Island (Newport Beach), El Paseo Village (Palm Desert), State Street (Santa Barbara),
and Promenade Temecula (Temecula).

Other U.S. store closures include Apple's Columbia store in Maryland, the Kenwood Towne Centre in Cincinnati, Ohio, and CoolSprings Galleria in Franklin, Tennessee.

The stores reclose from today, but Apple is accepting customers with existing online orders and previously scheduled Genius Support appointments at the locations through July 12.

Earlier this week, Apple chose to close four of its stores in Victoria, Australia, following the deteriorating health situation and the reintroduction of lockdown measures there.

Kind of a lot of misconceptions out there. In part because scientists are kind of discovering things as the pandemic goes on; in part because the media is eager for a quick narrative; in part because a lot of people want rationalizations.

For example, when the media talks about death rates and death tolls, that's factual, but also misleading. If you catch the virus and don't die from it, it can still pretty horrible. You could end up in the ICU. On a ventilator. You could end up with permanent lung damage. Damage to other organs. Apparently even the brain.

Why not wait and open only when it’s actually safe to do so? Yes, it’s going to take a while since half of the people do not give a toss about social distancing and wearing masks and each state adopts its own rules. What a mess!

It's unconscionable that this pandemic has been politicized to such an extent that US citizens have basically been left to fend for themselves and entire industries have been allowed to collapse. Apple has enough cash on hand to weather this, but many others aren't as fortunate. I'm not sure how we're going to make it through this, nor how long it will take. We will eventually, but I hope we can fix the dysfunction that caused this calamity.

This person thinks the real pandemic in this country is narcissism:

The right thing to do, keep the Apple Store employees safe.

Deaths are beginning to rise, hospitals reaching capacity ( increasingly with young people ) , and Florida a hot mess with a county with a huge 33% positivity rate.

It's good they're closing as needed.


I’m glad they close when necessary, but man this country is a mess when it comes to handling this virus.
Well said. This graph really shows it - we should be where Europe is:
