Apple explains in detail how stores are reopening
So far, nearly 100 Apple stores around the world have reopened with extensive changes, including temperature controls on the door, more frequent cleaning and requirements that staff and buyers wear face coatings. Apple is also limiting the number of people admitted to stores and will begin some sidewalk delivery and collection options in some locations, according to a declaration the company released on Sunday.

Reopening an Apple store requires planning that depends on multiple factors, said Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of retail and people.

“We review all available data, including local cases, short- and long-term trends, and assistance from national and local health officials,” he wrote in the note. “These are not decisions we rush into – and opening a shop in no way means that we will not take the preventive step of closing it again if local conditions justify it.”

In China, Apple (AAPL) the stores have been “safely open for months,” the company said. All 42 of its offices in China were closed for about a month in February during the peak of the epidemic there.
