Apple Returns to In-Person 'Today at Apple' Sessions in Europe

Apple has returned to in-person Today at Apple sessions in its retail stores in Europe, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, and Brussels, offering local communities a chance to gather once again to learn, collaborate, and explore the world of Apple's devices and services.

Apple, due to the global health crisis, halted in-person Today at Apple sessions last year. The company was originally hoping to return to normalcy in its stores in the United States on August 30; however, concerns regarding the health and safety of staff and customers pushed the company to delay the return to in-person Today at Apple sessions.

In replacement of in-person sessions, Apple has been producing and publishing Today at Apple sessions for YouTube, ranging from photography to drawing and art. Apple customers in Europe can now reserve and participate in Today at Apple sessions by checking the website for date, time, and availability for their local store.

Apple says that it will ask all participants, including kids, to wear a mask, adhere to social distancing, and additional health and safety measures based on local conditions.

Super spreading events.
Not really. If that photo were taken in the UK only about 2 of those people would have no Covid antibodies.

Apple deserves every lawsuit it will be hit with for hosting these super spreader events.

Come on. In countries were almost all of us are vaccinated, we’re still not allowed to do normal life? I think it’s not Apple the one to deserve a lawsuit in that case.

What country has hit the 95% vaccinated that's going to be needed to actually stop this?

You have to break some kind of law or contract to get sued. I can't speak for the other countries listed but the UK is open for business as usual. Almost all restrictions have been lifted, pubs, shops, clubs, cafes, theme-parks, hotels are all packed with people and few business are requiring masks. Self-isolation rules have been relaxed. I was as pro-mask and pro-lockdown as anyone, but we have the vaccines now and nothing else is coming to save the day.
