Apple’s NYC locations have been closed since March in response to the outbreak.
As more locations reopen, Apple said the company is committed to “reopening our stores in a very thoughtful manner with the health and safety of our customers and teams as our top priority, and we look forward to seeing our customers again soon.”
In a letter sent out in May, the company said it had been working on ways to ensure the safety of staff and customers while reopening stores. Limited occupancy in stores should be expected and face coverings will be required for everyone. Temperature checks will also be conducted at the door.
New York City entered Phase 1 of the state’s reopening process on June 8. As of Tuesday morning, the city — considered the epicenter of the virus — has reported over 210,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, according to the health department.
