Apple wants to gradually open the Apple Stores again, but does so with the necessary ‘corona measures’. This is what a visit to the Apple store will look like.
These are the Apple Store corona measures
In an online document, Apple’s Senior Vice President, Retail & People, Deidre O’Brien announced how Apple plans to reopen its stores. More than a hundred Apple Stores have since reopened worldwide since the corona measures, and that number will gradually increase in the coming weeks.
If an Apple Store reopens, a face mask is mandatory for both employees and customers. Did you not bring your own face mask? Then copies are available at the door.
In addition, temperature will be measured and there will be a ‘health check’ in which you will be asked whether you are healthy and show no complaints that may indicate an infection with the coronavirus. Finally, a thorough cleaning is performed on all tables and products several times a day.
Extra space has also been provided in the store to make it easier to keep your distance. Have you made an appointment to pick up a product? Then you don’t have to go all the way in front of the store and that can be arranged at the door.
All three Dutch Apple Stores in Amsterdam, The Hague and Haarlem are currently closed. It is not yet known when it will be the turn of the Dutch stores of Apple.
Apple and the coronavirus
Like many other large (tech) companies, Apple has been actively involved with the coronavirus in recent months. In addition to these Apple Store measures, the company is working with Google on a way to make corona apps work well on iOS and Android, and the company widely produces face masks that people can use to protect themselves.
