Apple Closes Its Stores in California

Posted on December 21, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Apple with 12 Comments

Apple announced this past weekend that it is temporarily closing all of its California retail locations because of the recent Covid-19 surge.

“Due to current Covid-19 conditions in some of the communities we serve, we are temporarily closing stores in these areas,” an Apple statement reads. “We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible.”

Apple had said a day earlier that it would be closing its Los Angeles-area stores for the same reason, but it escalated the closures to include the entire state. Los Angeles is currently the hardest-hit metro area in the United States for Covid-19 cases.
