In Australia, all except Sydney Apple Store reopening
The only Apple Store in Australia to remain closed beyond this week will be the flagship of Sydney. It is being renovated. Even if stores start to reopen, Apple still recommends that customers buy products online if possible. He takes precautions to protect staff and customers entering brick and mortar stores. In a statement, the company said:
To start, we will open with additional safety procedures, including temperature controls, social distance, and an adjusted calendar, to ensure that customers and employees continue to stay healthy. Our social distance protocol means a limited number of visitors to the store at a time, so there may be a delay for walk-in customers.
